My command prompt at work is all screwy.
1 - It doesn't seem to use the Path variable. For example, ping results in "not recognized as internal or external command". Strangely I can click the Environmental Variables button under the Advanced tab of System Properties, then click OK in the next window without actually changing anything and then when I re-open my command prompt it works ok. Any ideas as to why or how I can fix the underlying issue? It's a pain havng to do this every time I want to open my command prompt.
2 - I cannot resize my command prompt window. Maximizing simply moves the small window to the upper left corner of the screen. And I have no scroll bars! so I can't always view all of my output. Any ideas about how I can fix this?
I'm usually really good about figuring out this kind of stuff but I'm completely stumped. I've googled everything imaginable, looked at group policies, even tried to use regmon to find the registry keys that are acessed when I open a command prompt and I've gotten nowhere.
