    I read it. but I don't assume it has something to do with default file type association, besides normally lost association will prompt me to find one or set the new default.

    I think I will get back to this thread tomorrow. Now it's midnight here. About time to take some rest.

    thanks for all response given.

    If you're unable to run sfc from normal/safe mode, try booting from the Windows 8 DVD, then run the repair option followed by:

    Troubleshoot/Advanced Options/Command Prompt

    Then enter:

    sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=c:\windows

    Replace c: with your system partition.

    Calico.
    Thanks for the reply.
    From that environment I can run any command prompt.
    I changed the windir and winboot to Q:. Sfc run smoothly and said no integrity problem found.

    When I rebooted it and got back to windows environment. The problem persists. Any attempt to enter command line will fail as I explained at the first post. This a bit weird to me.

    Edit
    Hate to do this, but I eventually run refresh windows, have it back to original state. Thing are running expectedly.
    Marked the thread solved but note this as not essentially resolved.

    Thanks everyone for the assistance.

    Sorry you had to Refresh in the end but it was probably the best option. The (0xc0000142) error code has been around for a long time and usually indicates an initialisation failure for one or more dlls. You may have been able to 'fix' the problem by creating a new profile, but that's essentially what you've done with the refresh...

    Well. I didn't create new profile. But did enable Administrator account through computer management and log on to it. But still, windows prevented me from running any command line. It returned me the same error. So then I concluded there were things not related to system files integrity, but something as undetected malware or else that change the setting which returned me that persistent error in reaching command line. But I found most program were running uneventfully.
