This morning, cmd.exe is missing from my computer (Windows 10), from the regular path C:windowsSystem32cmd.exe. Please don’t advice on location check. My query is –
Is this a serious issue? Like some kind of malware attack?
Is it possible to get back / re-install command prompt (results from google / youtube are not helpful). I don’t have a recovery partition.
- Yes it could be evidence of a virus or malware
- Yes you may be able to get back the command prompt by doing the following:
- Run powershell as admin
- Run the command
It will repair missing or corrupted system files.
