Command Prompt to C:\

Right now at command Prompt I start out at C:\Documents and Settings\user
name>.
I type in C:, cd, and chdir. Cannot get to C:\. When I type in D:, of J: or
any other drive I have it goes right there. When I type cmd at Run in Start
I get C>. This cannot be changed either. When I do a DIR I still get the DIR
of C:\Documents and Settings\user name>. HELP
