I have recently (with no changes made) begun having an issue where I cannot get a command prompt to open. I am opening it directly (from search as well as directly from system32).

Trying to search the issue results in spam of people having issues with the prompt closing after running a bat file, which is obviously what happens by default.

I am directly opening the command prompt and it closes after a split second. I am not running a script or a command, just opening the prompt.

I've not heard of CMD needing elevated privileges to start. I have heard of virus doing this. I have heard of corrupted system files doing this. The suggestion is close to a zero effort to try, but I don't see it helping.

Try emptying the AutoRun RegKey found here "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor" in the registry.

I have literally just made an account to say thank you!

Removing the entry from the reg key worked for me and you have saved me so much time having to reinstall!

Thank you! :)

That helped ! after I install a program, I realized when I opened cmd, it would automatically close... I don't know why this happens, but after looking for so many answers, I'm glad you found it, that worked! I had some weird code line there saying something and "... & exit)", so it was really closing it...

Anyway, I just made this account to thank you too!
