cmd commands not working?

I have been trying to launch various cmd commands, but none of them are working.

A while back I used the 'convert.exe' option to change a USB drive from FAT to NTFS.

I typed 'convert X: /fs:ntfs' and it worked fine -- I've done that before. (X represents variable drive letter)
Now I am trying to do the same thing, but it is saying "'convert' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file".

It dawned on me that it was doing the same thing when I was trying unsuccessfully to launch apktool.

So I decided to go more basic than that. I did a simple "ping www.google.ca" and I got the same error.

Why are my cmd commands not working?

Just a stab in the dark, but have you checked that 1) The actual exe files exist (ping.exe and convert.exe are both in the c:\windows\system32 or c:\windows\SysWOW64 directories) and 2) that your environment variable for your path is including those directories.
