DOS window in XP disappears after about a second

When I type "ipconfig" in the 'Run' line in XP, the black DOS window opens for about a 1/2 second then closes.  Also, it appears that the DOS window is empty, instead of having the IP address info in it that I am seeking.  It was working fine a few weeks ago.  Thanks for any suggestions you might have.

It is normal for the dos window to disappear after it finishes executing the command. Try the following:

cmd /k ipconfig

Thanks.  I forgot, it's 'cmd' in the 'run' line, then 'ipconfig' at the DOS prompt.  Thanks!
