QGIS 1.8.0-1 does not launch (nor its companions: Browser, Grass, etc.) neither on machine with Win XP SP3 nor with Win 7 (GRASS installed separately works well). Console displays a message on launch: "'findstr' is not recognized as an internal or external operable program or batch file".

I tried all solutions suggested here earlier with no result.
