Sometimes, your path when you go to start->run, CMD will be something you don’t want. In active directory or on an NT domain, sometimes your default home path might be a network drive. This isn’t so good when you are offline or drop offline after being online. The CMD prompt is set to a place where you can’t get to.
To change the path, you can edit the registry (at your own risk)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
This will change the path to your c: drive.

That didn’t work for me (WinXP)
it didn’t work for me in Windows XP also
The actual string to enter is cd /d c:” Note the lack of a beginning quote and the presence of an ending quote, that is not a type
It works with “F:”, thanks!
PS: Registry type must be REG_SZ, just reopen your cmd and it will work.
