msconfig is a troubleshooting tool, and as such I don't recommend it's use for general tweaking/cleaning of the system. Rather, I'd suggest Mike Lin's StartupCPL (free here: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
) or Autoruns by SysInternals (free here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx
The error message that you're getting is telling you that something needs permission that you already have - so there's a problem here. The most common cause for this is a virus or other malware. I'd suggest trying a couple of free, online scans to ensure that your system is infection free.http://safety.live.comhttp://housecall.trendmicro.com
The pause, since it's exactly 2 minutes, is likely to be something on the computer looking for something (likely it's looking for a network resource) - and when it can't find it, it times out after 2 minutes. This was a significant problem with earlier versions of XP, so I'd have to ask if you have Service Pack 2 installed?
