Cheryl,

You might try a 95, 98, or ME group. This is XP. <g>

Anyhow, if you're at the C: prompt try "cd windows" and you should then see
a bunch of stuff. If you do, it's been a while, then you should be able to
either type "win" or just exit and restart it. Err... It's been a LONG time
so I'd really recommend that you ask in a non-XP group as there isn't DOS
included with XP.

Do, please, enlighten us as to how you managed such a feat on a system
running XP. You must be supremely talented as you cannot "open in MS-DOS
mode" - Windows XP does not have a "DOS mode".

Cheryl -First let me apologize for the sarcasm (rudeness) expressed by some
"experts" who respond to "please help" requests. Second - you need to
provide more detail e.g. "i accidently clicked open in ms-dos mode when I
shut down my computer" - exactly what did you "click"- Clicked open and shut
down are at odds. When you attempt to start Windows
what shows on the screen - does it just show "C:\" which you are referring
to as DOS mode?

/w Restores the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files from Config.wos and Autoexec.wos and prompts: Press Any Key To continue... Pressing a key reboots the system back to Windows 95.
/wx Restores the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files from Config.wos and Autoexec.wos and reboots the system to Windows 95. NOTE: .wos files are created when you open a program requiring MS-DOS mode and you have specified a new MS-DOS-mode configuration.

As one can't restart NT in Dos mode it must be Win 9x or Win 3x, I took a punt on the 9 series.

I never saw the original post but as I remember you type "exit" in the DOS
window and the PC will re-start normally.

This lady really has a mighty big chip on her shoulder. She is sarcastic and
picks up on trivial inaccuracies without offering even the slightest level
of help to folks who ask questions. She should remember people who post are
not newsgroup junkies, they neither know or care about ettiquette, but just
want a simple solution to what might be their first ever computer problem.
Miss P should lighten up and concentrate on being a useful contributer or
expect posts like this. If you dish it out you should also be able to take
it!

At least Miss P. Tick has the common courtesy to quote the thread she is

As it stands, your post is like a fart in the wind...no one knows where it

Well you are entitled to your opinion, but as my reply was part of a sub
thread directly linked to the original comments of Miss Perspicacia Tick, I
would have thought that that anyone with even the most modest amount of
common sense would have known what I was referring too. I suspect you knew
what I was talking about but you saw a chance to jump in and add what you
thought was a clever comment. I personally think the practice of repeating
the contents of previous post within a thread is just a waste of bandwidth.
People who really want to help will read the thread starting at the
beginning. I normally respond on Expert Exchange where the rudeness that
seems to happen here is more or less absence-that might be because its a
subscription service and the more moronic contigents cannot post, but Bobby
when I see you provide a technical response to a question, even if its
wrong, I will start to respect your views.

What you obviously don't know, is that this newsgroup is replicated over
THOUSANDS of servers throughout the entire world, and because of that there
may be timing differences, lost posts etc etc. Also, if someone sees your
post as the first post in the thread, (which happens quite often), as you
didn't quote the post you were replying to, he wouldn't have a clue what you
are on about.

It is Usenet custom and convention, to quote the post you are replying to.

Chelsea:
It's obvious from your postings that I've come across on this and related
newsgroups that you're a knowledgeable person generously willing to offer
help to those who are in need of personal computer technical assistance.
There's no question that you are making a valuable contribution in this
area.

But please, take Gordon's advice to heart, i.e., when responding to a query,
quote at least pertinent portions of the query and/or statements to which
you are responding. It's unnecessary that you include *all* the queries and
comments from past postings relative to the thread -- just the portion(s)
that bear upon the issue that you're responding to. Please understand that
many of us may be unfamiliar with the pertinent details of the thread and
even though we're not a party to the query or subsequent responses, we could
profit from your insights on the subject at hand. But having no context,
we're left somewhat adrift.

As to Miss P. She ain't no lady, that's for sure. More's the pity, since
(judging from a number of his/her postings) she (or he) displays from
time-to-time a fair amount of expertise in the subject-matter being
discussed. But she/he obviously gets some sort of a "kick" out of her/his
somewhat nasty, off-the-wall comments and how they engender subsequent
responses (such as this!). C'est la vie, I guess.

Hi Anna ,
thanks for a constructive set of remarks, but quite frankly I don't need to
post here, I don't get paid for doing it and if you guys want the likes of
the charming Mr Candy helping you so be it. I'm not going to waste my time
responding any more I'll stick with fee paying clients and the critics can
go to the devil. I would have thought that people who ask questions and then
don't have the common decency to acknowledge respondents are guilty of a far
greater level of rudeness than anything I could possibly do. Anyhow thats my
last comment thread closed as far as I'm concerned. Oh for the morons who
might think of spamming my email address I created it just for use on the
newsgroup. You can post to it but no one will read your pearls of wisdom.

Usenet is a rough and tumble place. You need a thick skin. It is
discouraging reading some of the rude, obnoxious posts but there are enough
useful posts to make the msnews server a good resource. Personally I get a
lot of good troubleshooting tips on here so I don't mind giving back a bit
of help despite the flack from some of the regulars who seem to do little
but call down anyone who doesn't agree with their notion of how computers or
the English language work.

Chelsea:
Please, for the good of us all, reconsider your attitude. The Usenet (and
God knows these newsgroups dealing with XP issues), needs persons like
yourself who are technically proficient, willing to share their expertise
with others in need and express themselves clearly and authoritatively. Lord
knows there are too many of the other kind! I shudder at some of the
half-baked and frequently wrong "solutions" promulgated by well-meaning
(hopefully!) responders that are given to some poor soul who (God help
him/her) may implement them. So we need people like you.

And yes, it is discouraging to learn that when we freely give of our time &
effort in trying to help someone with their problem, we frequently never
hear from that person again. No thank you. No indication whether our
information helped or hindered. Nothing.

But it's got to be a labor of love for us, no? The remuneration certainly
stinks. So we derive some degree of inner satisfaction in helping (or trying

And certainly don't let those rude/obnoxious people drive you out. After
all, they're nothing more than a tiny minority and as such, little more than
pin-pricks. The important thing is not to respond to their goading, hateful
messages. It's from the responses they receive that they derive their sickly
pleasure. Don't let the bastards win.

Well, since you refuse to do a simple thing like quote at least part of the
thread, I won't bother reading any more of your posts. You are now an elite
member of my killfile. Someone that truly cared as much as you would have
us believe would quote...

Hello Anna,
Thank you very much for your post and the nice things you said. I have
changed my mind about contributing here and your post helped me to remember
that 99.9% of the people here are decent nice people who you could happily
meet in real life. In response to your comments as well as Kerry I will post
an edited version of the original question so that people not using the
Microsoft server can follow what is going on. I must confess I never read
those things myself, but if that is what it takes to avoid the abuse dished
out by David Candy (can you imagine a more inappropriate surname for
someone?-sweet and nice-I think not)then so be it. Like you I quite like to
give something back to folks who would not normally pay for consultant
services. I actually do not care much about personal abuse-I am secure
enough to deal with that-but yesterday was a very emotional day here in the
UK and those obscene remarks made by Candy really upset me. Anyway thanks
again Anna and also the people who emailed me to whom I will write
seperately.

Hi Kerry,
thanks for what you have said. I've grown a thicker skin overnight and have
decided to stick around. Anyone who doesn't like that then TOUGH
When I post I tend to address what I say by name to the person having the
problem and I must confess I don't give much thought to people casually
reading the posts and that is probably a mistake, so I'll give a little
synopsis of the thread as is the convention.

It is a little sad that this thread has attracted more posts than any I have
ever been involved in. Some people were distinctly unpleasant yesterday and
it is a little alarming weirdos' like that are out there-they really should
get a life-computers are for business and entertainment, they are not a
replacement for a normal life and obcessives like David Candy and
NoNoBadDog! should get themselves real world relationships assumming anyone
is tasteless enough to have them.

Thanks again Kerry

What don't you understand about the fact that others cannot see the whole thread. If you want to post here quote the thread. All of us used to be nice to people all the time. But MS decided top flood the group with idiots that interfere in the running of the group and use free labour here rather than pay their own staff.

Before one had to have a minimun of knowledge to find the group. Now it's in Help.

Chelsea, Candy is a name for mine employers enforcers that would kill the workers and their families in Wales. Not much nice or sweet about that.

Hi Chelsea and Anna too.

Sorry for jumping in and also a little late, should have done it yesterday
but as they say (at least here where I live) "better late than never" and
yesterday was a mess with all the things going on in London. I have
relatives there too but they are okay.

It is good to see that people here can share their knowledge without being
abusive and so...I am glad you, Chelsea, changed your mind and will
contribute with your knowledge. Good that Anna (amongst others) "talked" you
into the right decision. I am not contributing so much myself, here at
least...I am mostly in the Swedish NG but I am often here to broaden my
knowledge and this place is a good source for that matter.

Thanks and have a nice day (despite all sorrow)

Gunilla.

Hi Gunilla,
thank you for that I appreciate it and totally agree this is a good place to
learn . I particularly like the sometimes obscure web references that people
post as some of those sites are real gems of knowledge and I daily learn
something new.

Thanks again

Hopefully you approve now that I am posting the relevant part of the thread,
David. It's not my concern that Microsoft does not have staff here although
I do think a Moderator would be useful. My experience of paid Microsoft
support is that it isn't always that great so even if Bill Gates had support
staff here that wouldn't guarantee perfection. As for what you said
yesterday it wasn't a case of not being nice, more a matter of being
personally offensive and your remarks on the bombings were to be honest
sick. People being blown to pieces is not an issue to rant about in a
newsgroup and you should be ashamed for having done that. I hope you were
more respectful after Bali?

David Candy

I thought bali was a fair thing. If countries like my own kill people all over the world to get a tick from america then they deserve what they get. I just stay away from likely attack areas. I last worked in a skyscraper on Sept 11, 2001. I don't go to the underground stations anymore.

Did I take up arms and overthrow the Australian government. No I didn't. Therefore I'm guilty too.

But what is sickening about London is Bush and Blair and the hypocrisy they sprout. If I was leading a country in an illegal aggressive war I would have taunted Al Queda - "is that the best you can do?" not give them emotional satisfaction and seeing the emotional effects of their actions. But Blair is more concerned with votes.

Blair's crap about how freedom fighting won't work forgets the 1770 war (loyalist areas were terrorised till they changed sides), Palistine in the 1940s, and many others.

If the deaths in london upsets you then stop waging war. Noone gets sympathy from me for acts of war. If it was an accidental thing I'd be upset. With sept 11 I was so angry when the second airline hit assuming for a minute or so it was inept air traffic control, once I twigged I thought it was a fair enough thing.

Those who live by the gun ...

If it turns out out be the IRA I will be upset. The britsh are in the right (as far as one can be in civil war). I see them as mediators in Nth Ireland (at least these days).

But it's likely to be the rewards of murdering people all over the world.

We've been that since 1969! (Well mostly)
Interestingly, most of the IRA funding came (comes?) from misguided and
ignorant Americans.

Well David,
no one can say you sit on a fence over these controversial issues and I can
respect you for that, but I'm diametricly opposite you on every other thing
you have said. One thing that seperates humans from other animals is our
compassion for others. If you had ever seen someone with 3rd degree burns
you would feel physically sick-no matter how hard you pretend to be. People
hurt yesterday lost eyes, arms and legs and many had their lungs burned with
toxic smoke. They will face in many cases years of pain and surgury. Their
former lives are over and as many open their eyes in hospital this morning
many will wish they hadn't survived. These were not soldiers, they waged war
on nobody and to me they are heroes. We live under a system, it is not
perfect but give me what we have any day in preference to the closed,
intollerent, brutal, merciless society wanted by Usama Bin-Laden which you
appear to support.

Glad you decided to stick around. There are many usenet zealots who like
nothing better than to flame someone who posts in a manner they don't like.
I've seen arguments rage on for days over top posting vs bottom posting.
It's hilarious to watch. Wait until you accidently upset some of the Linux
fanatics on here. That's fun. Sometimes on a boring Sunday morning I admit
to doing it on purpose :-)

Well I have seen 3rd degree burns. I'm also attending an inquest on tuesday for my sister who had worse than 3rd degree burns (she was charcoal).

When one does this to people one can't complain when someone does it back.



For years I kept a picture on the wall of the Siagon police chief executing a suspected VC. It reminded me people die in war and it's not only entertainment as I'm a boy and can get carried away with silly concepts like glory.

I'm an aethist and do not support any religion (though I'm baptised and confirmed High Church as I once believed). If you believe in god then good for you, just don't talk to me about it. However I don't want to convert you. Nor do I want to force other people how to live. Image if Spain had decided to help Cromwell by invading. If people don't like their government they can change it. It's not up to others to interfere. One thig I hate is the death penalty and incarceration of blacks in the US, by your standard Australia and England should invade to change it. I can't believe Blair want to put troops on the street for policing drunks. Australia should invade England to fix that too (this is a really stupid idea troops policing), after all England invaded Australia in 1778.

And the thing that pisses me off the most is the sense of entitlement that us anglos can kill whoever we want, and it's a tragic but necessary thing, but if anyone fight back we have been wronged.

Chelsea, Candy is a name for mine employers enforcers that would kill the workers and their families in Wales. Not much nice or sweet about that.

This, and about twenty other posts with "Re:" at the start of the
subject line, have just been downloaded into my Outlook Express with no
prior threads. And yes, my OE is set to keep threads together.

It seems to me that neither of you can accept that newsgroup servers
occasionally suffer accidents as all servers do, with consequential data
corruption.

Less of this unpleasant bickering, please.

Looks like dos to me all the same commands as dos
and if you look at the properties of command.com (which starts Command
prompt)
youll see that its a ms-dos based program and although dos isent used in the
operating
system of xp you can still run dos programs so there must be bits of it in
there somewhere

The black window is a terminal window. It runs any console program, type nslookup - this is not dos or command prompt. The XP command Prompt is cmd.exe - a 32 bit windows console program. There is a command.com but any command typed there DOES NOT get executed by command but by cmd.

There is a dos emulator which is why command exists. Dos programs expect to find command in memory and to be able to shell to it. When shelled to by a program command.com commands are run.

Type in Start Run the following

cmd /k ver
command /k ver

Now type cmd and then type in the terminal window ver
Now type command and then type in the terminal window ver

You can watch in task manager and see cmd start everytime you type a command in command.com.
