WIndows 7 Professional can't use the PING command__

I am trying to ping other machines from my windows 7 professional machine.
We do not use the windows firewall and it is turned off.

When I type the ping statement in the CMD window it says:

'ping' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

How can I ping with this machine?
