Check your autoexec.bat, it's probably trying to remove a directory or something like that.
Open up explorer and right click the c:\autoexec.bat file, chose edit and check if there's a line with RD something something.

Fei is right..
You might have given  commands lke

Rd <dir>

Inside your autoexec.bat to remove temp file or so.

If you go to start/run/ and type sysedit and check all your system startup files not just autoexec.bat.
Alternatively hit f5 of8 depending on your system as windows boots and choose to boot by command prompt only. Click yes at each point and you should see which part gives the error.

Cmap,
 you have mentioned Command prompt only instead of Step by Step option.
