COMMAND.COM

COMMAND.COM is the default command-line interpreter for MS-DOS, Windows 95-98, Windows 98SE and Windows Me. In the case of DOS, it is the default user interface as well. It has an additional role as the usual first program run after boot, hence being responsible for setting up the system by running the AUTOEXEC.BAT configuration file, and being the ancestor of all processes.
