Re: command prompt is repeatedly opening closing

Hi Vijayarya,


Does this happen at any specific time, or is it random? 


If it happens at a set time, or often while using the machine, you could try running Process Monitor to see what is executing cmd.exe. Autoruns may also be beneficial in identifying if there are any scheduled tasks or other autostart entries that may be launching cmd.
