command line window disappears

When I open the "Run" window and type in "w32tm /register", the resulting window flashes on the screen and disappears. (It flashes barely long enough to notice the command prompt.)

You should actually open the command window and then type w32tm /register.

Click Start > Run > type cmd

type problem is that the program w32tm executes, displays output, then exits.   If you don't open a terminal (by running 'cmd.exe'), the termination of hte program will close the window.
