I have Windows XP SP2 installed with antivirus and 4 different spyway
programs. I had a list for all the run commands but have lost it. Can someone
please send me to a site that shows the run commands please? Thank you

Copy into "Run:"

%systemroot%\hh.exe Ms-its:%systemroot%\help\ntcmds.chm::/ntcmds.htm

If this is what you want, put a shortcut on the desktop with this command.

What you see on screen is neither. It is a terminal window used by any console program. Type nslookup in Start Run, it is neither command or cmd.

Cmd is the command interpreter for NT based systems (and available for 95/98/ME system as well). Command is the command interpreter on 95/98/ME and also for Dos.

Command in NT based systems is a slightly modified version of Dos 5's command. It's modified to pass all commands to cmd for execution. Dos and Windows 3.1 programs expect to find command and that's why it's there. These programs may execute Dos commands like so

command /c dir
and this will run Dos 5's Dir. But typing Dir in command will run Cmd's Dir.

Command is run in the win32 emulator for Dos. Cmd is a win32 program and runs in the Win32 sub system.

There are unix shells as well available for XP. XP is an OS that runs other OS's - the only one now shipped with XP is Windows 32 bit (as I said above Win 16 and Dos are run in a in Win 32 emulator). Previous versions included OS/2 and Posix. Posix was upgraded to a more featured sub system and you can download of MS and install onto XP (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/sfu/productinfo/features/default.asp).

Install Unix on XP and you can use unix shells.
