We've taken over a server that appears to have been infected with spyware or some viruses, which I think we've cleaned off. Symantec AV, AVG, MalwareBytes, and Windows Defender have all found infections that they said they cleaned, and we've rebooted after each one. now the server appears to be clean, but we can't open the command line.
Every time we launch cmd.exe (from the Start menu, the Run command, or the System32 folder) the window comes up and shows "tftp.exe
" in the upper-left instead of the CMD.exe location. Instead of the folder location in the main window, it shows "Password_" . As soon as we enter any text the window automatically closes.
I've copied the CMD.EXE file from a different server that works as well as a Windows 2003 CD, but they all do the exact same thing. We've also installed all Windows 2003 updates.
We need to get into the command line ASAP to do some work, but have not been able to figure this out.
Any help would be appreciated.
