    CMD.EXE is a safe file.
    Trying rescanning your pc with a different antivirus or malware with Windows Defender or Microsoft forefront.

      Will need more help on how to proceed from the screen showing. How do I get rid of this screen. Should I choose something to open with to get anything to show up on desktop. Sorry beginner here

      Can you boot to safe mode? If so, run a full scan with both your Anti Virus app and with MalwareBytes

        Reboot. Begin tapping the F8 key as soon as the system boots. This will take you to the advanced boot option screen. Choose safe mode and then run the scans.
