    I tried changing the registry entry as suggested but it made no difference -
    have a problem with my command.com and if so how did i fix it?

    Thanks in advance

    And would reinstalling windows xp and/or formating my hard drive solve the
    problem I am experiencing?

    If you read the page correctly you would see:
    "This behavior can also occur if the Command.com file that is
    installed on your computer is damaged or is the incorrect version."

    If you have a problem with command.com, use a system restore.

    sorry mike i did indeed read this but didnt see a solution - I have this
    problem forever ( at least a long time) so I am sceptical whether a system
    restore would solve anything - how else could I fix it? Would re-installing
    windows xp over the top solve anything?

    If you have had this problem for a long time, I would suggest
    that you back up everything that's important and go for a
    completely clean (format) re-install.
