cmd.exe failed to initialise

I often get this on shutdown, All security is up to date blah blah! The problem only displays on shut down, about two or three times. It's a nuisance and has been occuring for some time, It's only now that I'm thinking that I might try and fix it. It amy have started when Google desktop was installed, but I can't remember that far back!

A search for cmd.exe shows one instance in ..\system32\ where it should be, and one in \system32\dllcahe\ which I'm not so sure of.

any one offer suggestions?

It's not a dll, so it shouldn't, really, be in the cache. Try deleting it, from there, and see how you go.

Failing that, it could be client, service, and program incompatibilities that may occur when you modify security settings and user rights assignments.
