What is the problem???

OK, let's do a little bit of typing. Do this on Computer C (WinXP):
1. Click Start / Run
2. Type this command: cmd /k mode com lines=50
3. Click OK.
4. Type the following commands:
net user > c:\test.txt
net use Q: \\\Documennts 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
echo dir Q:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
dir Q:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
echo cacls Q:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
cacls Q:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
echo Copy to Q:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
copy %comspec% Q:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
echo dir Q:\Datasheet 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
dir Q:\Datasheet 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
echo cacls Q:\Datasheet 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
cacls Q:\Datasheet 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
echo Copy to Datasheet 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
copy %comspec% Q:\Datasheet 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
net use R: \\\Documennts\Datasheet /user:"xxx" yyy 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
copy /y %comspec% R:\ 1>>c:\test.txt 2>>&1
notepad c:\test.txt
Replace xxx with your normal Windows 7 logon name and yyy with the password that goes with it.
If you know how to then it would be a good idea to copy & paste the above command into a batch file and run this batch file. It would eliminate typographical errors.
5. Copy and past the report text into your reply.
