For some unknown reason to access REGEDIT or CMD via START RUN i have to put .exe after either of them, this is not a problem just curious as to why it has changed, os W2K.

Thanks VoG, yes i did have regedit.com and cmd.com, enabled show all system files, deleted them both from system32 then searched for *.pif and deleted entries for regedit and cmd. Now only need to type in regedit or cmd.
