Disabled Command Prompt


Enigma X

:( When I run command prompt, I am told, "command prompt has

been disabled by your system administrator." How do I (as

administrator) get access to my command prompt again ? :(


Enigma X

No. I cannot run cmd.exe

I am working on a standalone computer (home use)

No other computers connected.



Hey, if you're using XP Pro you can give the Group Policy editor a try. Open the run box and type "gpedit.msc". Take a look under "User Configuration - Administrative Templates - System" and look for a setting called "Prevent access to the command prompt" Set this to "disabled" and try opening the prompt again. I hope this works, and if you have XP Home, I'm sorry that I gave you advice you can't follow.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
