Default Command prompt is messed up

Alright so I noticed this yesterday but thought maybe it was just a fluke and restarted the computer.
But it is still doing it..

If I go to start > run > cmd.
It will start command prompt but it will exicute like it was a bat file with no pause command. (pop up quickly and then close right away).

It does this unless I type in run "Command".

I'm also getting a "end now" error when I attempt to exit command prompt using the (X)close button.

Just made a test.

If I make a bat file with the command
@echo off
ipconfig /all
pause

The pause is totally ignored as well as the ipconfig.

The same with:
@echo off
tree
pause

What the heck is the problem here?

Is it my Cmd.exe file?

Default Re: Command prompt is messed up

There seemed to be a "cmd.exe" file in my document and settings folder.
Along with a plain file "cmd".
Every time I tried using run > cmd, it would just run the cmd.exe.

Deleted them both and works fine now.

Thanks guys for all your help

Make sure you give yourself some Rep!

I noticed your post but for the life of me couldn't think of anything that would help!
