Goto dos prompt. type "copy con a.bat" and press the return key. Then type "ipconfig /flushdns" and press ctrl+z. This will create a.bat which should be as good as an exe file

Where does it copy it to?  I did that and it said 1 file copied...I still need that file to send to people.

Thanks

once you are at the promop it should say something like

C:\Documents and Settings\Rajesh>

In the above example you can access the file by starting windows explorer - gooing to c drive - documents and setting folder and then Rajesh folder

You can also create the file in the root of your drive by typing "C:\" and return key before creating the file...

if you are still unable to find it, you can always try searching for a.bat (start-search)

typing c:\ will just give you an error. it should have been cd\
