Re:Need to know what this file does
a command prompt in Windoes XP isn't DOS mode. it's just a command prompt. does the window close by itself? the only reference to labexp4 is a program for controlling gas chromatographs.

It wasn't a command prompt. I tried to run the program that was showing and it told me that it could not run in ms-dos. also I later realized that the drive that it was telling me that it was on didn't exist on the computer or any of the computers on the network. i had to reboot the computer to get windows to load cause the run windows command wouldn't work in ms-dos mode.

someone has been changing configuration files on your computer. have you scanned for a virus or spyware? how are you connected to the Internet? are you using a firewall?
Re:Re:Re:Re:Need to know what this file does
Its a computer at the school I'm attending because I keep my computer clean of all spyware and virusware. I know the damages that spyware can do to a computer. But I'll get to the point. The school I'm attending currently has 21 computers running off of a T1. I dont think there's a firewall on the computer because the school district wants to be able to look at the computers remotely. There are about an average of 140 spyware files per computer but I can't get rid of them. I've alrdy tried doing that by using Ad-Aware6 but it doesn't work be cause they have a deepfreeze on all the computers which doesn't allow you to change anything with out permission it all reverts back to the orginal settings unless you know of a way to get around it or disable it temporarily. Ive tried 3 times to run a scan on there and each time there was more spyware and malware on the computer then the last time. So the spyware isn't having a problem on getting around the deepfreeze. When I tried getting rid of it before I found out I couldn't actually get rid of it i noticed that they had Gator, Red Sherrif, and alexa. those three are the only ones that I can remember the names of but there was a lot more then just those three. Also the people who are supposed to be the computer techs for the school don't have a clue on how to fix a computer. I'm always having to help the people here with their problems.

well, like i said, it's not a DOS window. it could be anything that has modified the startup and did it wrong. a virus, spyware, or just ineffectual hacking could do this. you can have Windows XP/2K run CMD files at startup but they are not DOS windows. there are plenty of ways to lock up a computer network with a firewall and still allow remote access. if they don't know that, they had better learn.
