    A friend has found that on booting he now gets a DOS site
    How can he change to windows? Is there a DOS command to do this?
    I think it was after he used Partition Commander

    Sounds like your friend messed with something they did not understand and
    changed it so they are now booting to a different partition than the one
    Windows is installed upon (Windows XP is not DOS based.)

    Partition Commander is probably the cause. It seems to have a option
    to created a DOS 'partition' to install its own multi-boot menu
    options.

    Have your friend get into Partition Commander and set the windows
    partition as the default.

    We assume he gets a DOS prompt (not "DOS site.")
    He should try keying one word
    exit
    If Windows has been loaded, this DOS command exits
    the DOS window to display parent Windows.
