I am running Windows 7.
Whenever I try to run commands like 'ping', 'ipconfig', 'taskkill', 'tasklist', etc from the command line I get an "Access is denied" message.
I checked the "Advanced Security Settings" for the Windows\System32 folder and the Owner was set to "TrustedInstaller". I changed the owner to "Administrators" but this did not seem to help.
Any ideas? I was previously able to execute commands at the cmd prompt without issue.
