MS-DOS Corruption

Post by Lagato12 »

Hey guys, I was wondering if you all could help me out..

I need to reinstall my Command-Prompt because it has gotten very corrupted. I want to do this with out reformating my PC. Do any of you have ideas?

Thanks,

- Lagato.

PS: It's giving me errors when I give cmds like it will say, "16 bit subsystem, The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:054b IP:0102 OP:ff ff 83 3e 51 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application. "

:?

I remember you guys saying something about going in windows and deleteing a fake ms-dos? Lol, I really don't remember so help me out if you would please. Thanks again. :cry:

Also, as I said. I would like to be able to fix it without reformating and I checked my Windows reinstall disk and found nothing useful..

hm...get 4DOS from the useful programs download section and try if the problem appears with this program too. if not you can use 4DOS instead of your normal cp, it´s even better...
if it not works I would try to repair the system with the install disk... :wink:

go start>run and type: sfc /scannow
it´ll search for corrupted system files and you can replace them with the XP disk when something is found.
if that still don´t work you have to repair the system with the XP disk by booting from it and chose the repair option, don´t worry, you don´t have to format your drive when repairing, and your saved data will NOT be erased, only the system files will be replaced (but a backup of your important files is recommended).... :wink:

try deleting the cp program file in your system folder and replacing it with another one, you can get them from the Ultimate Boot disk website
