As a followup to my recent post “Comspec Corruption”, I’m happy to report that the culprit has been found.

The installer for the client drivers for accessing a Sybase database.

What on earth they were thinking, I’ll never know … but at least I know that I’ll need to fix COMSPEC after any reinstall of that driver.
