That's simple:

type a ctrl/c a few times during the the startup-file output to get the
explicit MCR> prompt.
There you type "abo at."
at. is the indirect task executes the startup.cmd file. If you'r luckey, you
have now an open console that is also priviledged.

If you're unluckey then a smart sysadmin may however have build some
precautions into the startup.cmd file to prevent this to happen.
