cmd.exe is not in my task manager.  It probably is being used to run a program.  You need to figure out how it is getting started.

   Look in startup.
   You can do that by either getting our program, Speed Startup (http://superwin.com/speedstartup.htm), and having it scan for startup items

   or

   type msconfig in Run and look in the Startup tab of System Configuration.

Something has to start it.  Maybe the browser starts it or some other program.
