Q: Did you select Command prompt link from Start/All Programs menu? or did
you start CMD ? Or Command?

DO look at the contents of your Autoexec.NT & Config.NT files.

Do you have XP SP2 AND Avast antivirus on this system?


Study this advice from Torgier Bakken, MS-MVP:


Is there a reference to a autoexec.nt file in the error message?


The autoexec.nt problem is most likely caused by a worm or if you have
WinXP SP2 and AVAST (antivirus software) installed, it also can cause
this error.


You can put back the standard version of autoexec.nt/config.nt by
copying a backup copy held in %windir%\repair\ to %windir%\system32\
(%windir% is typically C:\Windows) instead of using the procedure in
the KB article above.


Could be caused a trojan or something similar, e.g.
TrojanDownloader.Win32.Dia.a, more about this here:

Also, AVAST (antivirus software) can be the cause if you
have WinXP SP2 installed:
