ZuluGuru, have you really done it the right way (and not the other way round)?
You need to
1 rename utilman.exe to utilman.exebak
2 copy cmd.exe to the same folder
3 rename the copy of cmd to utilman.exe

After rebooting, simply click on the icon as shown here:

Win+X, then press "A" if you want to run the CMD prompt as Admin, or "C" if as logged on user.
