Use this helper method:

using System.Diagnostics;
...
public static void ExecThroughCmdShell(string command) {

  Process.Start(
    Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("COMSPEC"),
    " /c " + command
  );
}

The name of the command interpreter is in the COMSPEC env variable (usually something like c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe). You can give cmd.exe a /c param to make it run the rest of the command line and then exit. You can call the method like ExecThroughCmdShell("dir /s /p c:\\windows").
