Probably disk corruption.  Backup what you can, an way you can manage, then run CHKDSK /F at a command prompt, reboot and see if the problem is resolved.

That error usually comes up when the directory you are trying to change to does not exist.  Are you typing the correct folder/directory name?  If so, for funny stuff like this, I can't help but think that there's a virus activity going on.

Could CMD have been replaced?

Too fast for me. I had too many RDP sessions going and lost track of which one was which. Your answer is correct. The directories I tried were not there, they were on a different server.
