Hi, As you can imagine I have another PC downstairs (sisters) which she has just restored due to a virus. She uses her TV as the monitor and the problem is she can't remember where she was to type in a command other than it was at a DOS command prompt. mThey are trying to do so thru the windows based DOS command prompt. How do you get into DOS prior to windows loading. I know ther is a function key but not sure which one it is. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
If there is no DOS command box icon, or, the run command box is not present, then you can copy and paste the following into a text file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt] @=”Command Prompt:” [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CommandPrompt\Command] @=”cmd.exe /k cd %1?
Rename CmdPrompt.txt to CmdPrompt.reg. Double click on and accept usage of CmdPrompt.reg -- that will give you the context-menu right-click followed with the left click on "command prompt here" access to a DOS command box anywhere within explorer.exe, on its left-side or right-side pane -- depending upon which Windows version/edition.
