Just wanted to say thanks to NaelAmer for that solution. This problem has been bugging me for months. Even up reloading XP just to get over it - in my case it was Regedit as well as CMD that wouldn't work.
Anyway just as you suggested, had a look in system32 and indeed there were 5 or 6 zero-byte .com files (including ping and tracert). Knock them off and all is well.
Any ideas what might have caused this?? After reloading XP the problem was resolved (obviously) but then just seemed to pop back by magic.

thanks a lot
After I installed Microsoft`s Monad Shell beta 3, when I try to run cmd it says "cmd is not a valid win32 application". If I run cmd.exe it works. This happens to all exe`s on my computer. After I uninstall Monad Shell, the problem remains. The problem is that all my batch files refuse to work now. Any ideas how can I fix this ?

iv seen this before and as far as i rememeber it was nothing to do with corrupt files and was a virus of somesort, could just be coincidence that you installed that theme at the same time, or the theme itself may have had some sort of malware in it.
just out of interest were you running anti-virus at the time?

Try this: SETX -m PATHEXT .COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH
exit that command prompt, and restart another one. See if the problem still happens.
