character encoding EMACS + WINDOWS +SHELL

Because I want to explain it clear and fast I used an example (I'm on windows XP SP2 using GNU Emacs 22.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600):

1. I open notepad
2. write "coño"
3. I save "prueba.txt" and close
4. then press "Start + r"
5. and write cmd
6. type "emacs -nw" (I want to use it in the shell)
7. then in EMACS C-x C-f "prueba.txt"
8. why is that instead of "coño" I get "co±o"??, I read the manual already (the powerful emac's manual) encoding, decoding, "International Character Support page 186 and i still don't get it, I think is related to the windows shell encoding ?...
9. I close emacs "C-x C-c"
10 I type "EDIT.COM prueba.txt", puff ! the same "co±o", ..., is there some way to fix this? to display the right character "ñ"? (I'm sure there is some way!) how?? i need to express myself I'd like to do it through EMACS + WINDOWS + SHELL :)

thanks in advance !
