where in explorere is it I cant find it in my system ?
scan it with norton antivirus and if it isnt a virus double click it to see what it is if you are brave or just delete it . unistall it if you can 1st though. search on google suggests something possibly to do with java coommunications software?

Command.com is the standard dos command inteperter.

Bring up the properties on the other file and post its DOS name (with extension).

Hello Paul,

Do you or have you run Quake 1, the icon you mention sounds like the icon for Quake , if I'm right they are probably leftovers from this game.
So if you don't use it anymore just delete them.
