This usually happens if the computer's path statement cluttered. You need to launch the Command Prompt and type Set and press the enter key. And also, search for the path: C:WINDOWSSystem32. You will need to modify the Path and fix it by clicking on Start and go to My Computer. Right-click into it and click on Properties. Under Properties, click the Advance tab and choose Environment Variables. Choose the Path variable stated on the system Variables.

While modifying, you need to add the following:

%SystemRoot%system32

It will change to something similar to:

C:WINDOWSsystem32

All entries on the Path should be separated by a semicolon.

Now try.

Hello Dear,

This type of problem often appears in windows 7. Thereby, you may use the ping command. But before that, you have to turn off your windows firewall. To do this, go to the start menu and then control panel. There you will see firewall icon. Go into it. Here you can turn off the windows firewall.

 

Now, come to the main point.

1.Go to the start menu> accessories> command prompt.

2.Right click on it and run as an administrator

3.Type the following commands and press enter

dir %SystemRoot%System32ping.exe

path %path%;%SystemRoot%System32

ping www.google.com

Here you will understand what to do

 

Thanks for your time

The “ping” command is a DOS command that you can run in the command prompt in Microsoft Windows. This command can be executed in any folder or directory in the command prompt. The only time you will receive an error that the program is not recognized as an internal command is when the program is renamed to something else, deleted, or moved to a different folder.

The executable for the “ping” command is called “PING.EXE” located in “C:\Windows\System32”. This path where the ping command is located is stored as a system variable in Microsoft Windows to make sure the program can be launched anywhere on the computer.

If you remove this file from its original location or you delete or rename it, you will receive an error saying “’ping’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file”. To make Windows run the program normally again, move it back to its original location. If you rename it, enter the new name to launch the command.
