This reply from email,"i've windows xp operating system.whenever i clicked on it the command prompt window flashes up & then disapears."

Does it appear as a task in the task bar?

(please reply through this forum, thanks.)

'i clicked on it the command prompt window flashes up & then disappears'

Are you clicking on an icon? If so is the icon a shortcut to a dos program?, one that has the 'close on exit' check box ticked. (Right click on the icon, select properties and click on the program tab). Out of interest what is the icon trying to run?

To open a command prompt from the Start button, click on Start, click on Run and type 'cmd' into the run box for a command prompt or 'command' into the run box for an MS-Dos prompt.
