So how can i perform your solution
"Click Start, Run, Type CMD, and click OK."
If i dont have a start button to click?
Here's what happening so far- perhaps it's okay, perhaps not, please tell me. The info I see on my CMD screen looks quite different from yours and I have only 6 lines of info including what I have entered compare to your 11. I'm not on the computer with the problem otherwise I could place a snapshot here. I have...
