How To View CMD.exe Message After User Login

» Running Win 7 Home prem on laptop. Sequence is switch on; Win 7 Loads to the user Login screen; Choose user 1; Within 10 seconds the CMD.exe box appears and flashes off very quickly with several messages in but too fast to read. My question is how can I read this message - it is obviously telling me something with this user but too quick for me to read it.

» It’s somehow a malware, and you need to run anti-virua scan now! The prompt message is meant to be read, it indicates a malware if it is displayed too fast to see clearly.

Malware bundles itself with legitimate software, or in Trojans(Trojan:Win32/Startpage), which will disguises itself as a normal exe file or program to trick users into downloading and installing it. For instance, CMD.exe in this case. CMD.exe virus consumes a lot of CPU usage. To remove CMD.exe virus manually, open "Task Manager" to end cmd.exe, the usage of cpu will drop dramitically, then go to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\ folder, delete MicroSoft.bat and the mentioned exe file. Then go to c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS\ folder, delete new123.bak; reboot the computer into safe mode and delete new123.sys.

Or you can use DLL Suite to fix this problem automatically be cause DLL Suite is created with one of its special tool called "Fix EXE Virus", which is specially targeted to fix virus infection problems, such as slow PC performance and high cpu usage.

If you see nothing there then the easiest method is probably to hit it with the sledge hammer. It will take a few minutes but who cares?

    1. Click Start.2. Type the three letters cmd into the Search box.3. Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter4. Click "Run as Administrator".

    5. Type the following commands and press Enter after each of them:dir /b /s /a c:\*.bat > "%UserProfile%\Desktop\script.txtdir /b /s /a c:\*.cmd >> "%UserProfile%\Desktop\script.txtdir /b /s /a c:\*.vbs >> "%UserProfile%\Desktop\script.txt

    6. Open the desktop file script.txt, then copy and paste the text into your response.

  2. DEAN CARPENTER replied on January 22, 2013: » Well under the startup tab quite a few entries - none that look suspicious(mostly MS startup items and a few hardware ones like sound and mouse etc) - is there an easy way to list them? Also - where would be the batch file (assuming there is one) which loads the options for that user? I assume that when one clicks a user name it carries out a sequence of events including which programs etc etc to load? It is at that point the cmd window opens and then flashes off seemingly perhaps that it cant find something. Is there no way of stepping thru that process? Would this appear in the software registry of that user?Sorry for my ignorance but it is now a mission!

  3. LISA REID replied on January 23, 2013: » cmd.exe allows access to the Microsoft Windows Command Prompt, also known as Microsoft DOS. To date, cmd.exe is a 32-bit command prompt used in Windows NT, 2000, and XP and offers disk and file maintenance functions to your computer as well as network functions.

    This program is a non-essential system process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.

  4. SUELI LIMA replied on January 26, 2013: » OK, since the problem disappears in Safe Mode but persists in all of the other modes then it is caused by some driver because Windows runs only with the minimum number of drivers while in Safe Mode. I have never done a search by elimination for drivers - perhaps you can do it by selectively deactivating them in the Hardware Manager. The Event Viewer (eventvwr.exe) might also give you some clues.

    Remember to restore the various ticks you removed under msconfig.exe!
