I am using LogMeIn Free to a Windows 7 Home Premium PC.

I log in as an Administrator, and want to get to a command prompt window.

I click Start, type CMD, right click and choose Run as Administrator, and the command prompt window opens normally.  However, in the middle of the window it says "Enter char to copy up to" and I cannot either remove it or type in a command behind it.

What is it, and more importantly, how can I get rid of it so that I can use the command prompt normally?
