Somehow Auto completion stops working in command prompt in windows XP. Then I google about this error and found the solution
I just follow the follwoing steps and now its working fine.

  • Go to Start -> Run, type regedit
  • Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor
  • On the right, double-click on the "CompletionChar", type 9 and press OK.
  • On the right, double-click on the "PathCompletionChar", type 9 and press OK.

If there are no entries like CompletionChar or PathCompletionChar in Commnad Processor Folder then you can add them as string values.

Windows unable to find the file svchost.exe in ‘c:\windows\svchost.exe’

Filed under: XP Tweakers — Kunal Jain @ 05:41

As svchost.exe actually resides in ‘c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe’ so if you are getting an error on starting the computer that “Windows unable to find the file svchost.exe in ‘c:\windows\svchost.exe'” then copy the svchost.exe file from ‘c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe’ and copy it to ‘c:\windows\svchost.exe’

Your error will be gone.
