Is there a way I can bind a keyboard combination (for example Win + c) to launch the command prompt in Windows 7?

Find a Command Prompt GUI icon. There's one located in Start > All Programs > Accessories by default. Right-click it and select Properties from the context menu. Enter some unused key combination in the "Shortcut key:" field.

My keyboard doesn't have a Windows key, so I don't know about the specific combo you requested, but I confirmed that this works in the general case with Ctrl+Alt+C.

This unfortunately cannot start a second instance of the same program -- instead, it is brought to the foreground. –  grawity Sep 9 '11 at 14:56
