help me! how to get rid of cmd.exe
everytime I start up my computer, an ms-dos window pops up and runs a program called cmd.exe. this is not something that is supposed to happen, i am not sure how to fix it. I have gone though search for file, typed in cmd.exe and deleted it, but if i do it again, it shows up again. somehow it makes a copy of itself and won't get deleted. it doesnt show up in the processes tab at all. i am not sure what it is, but i know it's not supposed to happen. is there anyway to fix this? also i tried to print screen so i could see what shows up in the window, b/c it goes away really fast, but i guess i didnt "print screen" correctly.
thanks for your help.

I want to know why when I delete it, it comes back again and again and if there is another way to get rid of something from my comp.
i don't have any random programs in my programs list, it's not listed under processes nor in the startup but it's running in the background i know it, b/c of when i start up it shows up, but it should not be there.
