Hi, I can speak spanish so i will do it.

Hola, parece que estás utilizando Windows como sistema operativo. Hay en la página de composer un instalador que simplemente ejecutándolo hace todo el trabajo por ti. Lo descargas y lo instalas, quizás necesites deshacer todo lo que ya hiciste previamente.

ESTE ENLACE TE LLEVA A LA DESCARGA / This link get you to the download directly!! https://getcomposer.org/Composer-Setup.exe

Una vez instalado para utilizarlo abre el CMD y ejecuta ahí los comandos que desees. En caso de que el CMD no te deje yo me bajaría GIT Bash y utilizaría eso como CLI de windows.
