  • My antivirus blocked "Sysnative cmd.exe" in C:\WINDOWS\  folder. What file it is? Should I unblock it or continue with the same?

    consumer questions are usually better placed in the consumer section of Microsoft.com, Technet is a place where IT Professionals exchange information. Asking in the right place helps you by improving the odds of receiving swift help and improves the quality thereof. It also helps other people that have the same problem find the solution you arrived at.

    That said, cmd.exe is an  application that runs commands (it's what most windows-user think of when someone mentions the term "commandline") or scripts (which is probably how you ended up here).

    By itself it is not malevolent, you should rather ask yourself what is being run by cmd.exe.

    Cheers,
    Fred


    There's no place like 127.0.0.1

  • One possible explanation is that you have disabled UAC or permitted an infected executable to run and it infected and/or replaced cmd.exe, which is a legitimate executable.

    As FWN pointed out, this isn't an end-user support forum.

    You need to take your computer to a shop and have someone clean the malware from it.
