    XP Command Prompt problem ("Press ENTER key to exit...")

    After every command I use in a Windows XP Command Prompt (DOS) window, I get the following message: Press ENTER key to exit...

    Pressing enter brings up the prompt again, ready for another command. This never happened before today, and it's very annoying. What could cause it, and how can I get rid of it?

    Strange! I've seen about every weird thing on Windows PC's in the past 1.5 years with our PC service business, but this one is new. I searched Google and couldn't find anything either. Are you entering the command prompt using S - > R - > cmd ?

    No. I start it from a shortcut icon on the Desktop. I have half a dozen DOS shortcuts set up, all with different starting directories, colours, etc. I like to work like that, and have been doing it with no problem for years (since the early days of OS/2, RIP).

    I've a feeling I've seen something like this before a long time ago, but can't put my finger on it.

    Did you ever figure out what the problem was?
