Each C:\> you see is just a [space] in the autoexec.bat file. Open autoexec.bat using Notepad and click on Edit, Select All, again click on Edit->Delete. Save and close autoexec.bat. Restart the computer, see if that helps.

2 autoexec.bat files in C:\ :confused:

Thats weird, you've to modify the file in the C:\ and not the one in C:\Windows\Command\ebd.

Are you sure there are 2 files? Check again and post back with the contents of autoexec.bat(files) in the C:\. I guess one of them is autoexec.bak

BTW, what OS are you using? If its Windows 98 then try this -

Start->Run->msconfig [enter]

Click on Selective Startup and uncheck the option Process Autoexec.bat file. Click on Apply, Ok. Restart the computer.

NO, don't delete those 2 lines.

If the file is empty, then it is safe to delete it.
But, as I said, if you just want to not see the C:\ prompts, AND still want to have the file around, just add the @Echo Off line.
