Default Re: Ipconfig

What exact error does it give ?

The IPCONFIG command is actually a command line program usually in your system32 folder.

try the command %systemroot%\system32\ipconfig

If the above works then the chances are your path environment variable is missing system32, type path into a command prompt and post the output here.

Default Re: Ipconfig

ok your path variable is messed up

run a command prompt and copy paste the following in and hit enter.

Quote:
PATH=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\
See if your ipconfig works now.

Something seems to be resetting your path variable. If you suspect you have malware you should head over to our malware forum and follow the instructions over here (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407)
