Dear Bleeping Computers Forums,

Software- Admin 2009.11.15

Use of MSconfig to setup for Normal Startup Mode

When typed ‘msconfig’ in Start > Run, the following message appears:

Windows cannot find “msconfig.” Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

What can be done about it?

Thanking you.

All the best,

Did you type 'msconfig' or msconfig?
If you used the apostrophe in your search term, you will receive an error message.
Try entering it without them.

In the run dialog type this : %windir%\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe. Here %windir% expands to your windows folder, for most users it would be c:\widnows.

If the MSConfig tool still does not run, then your MSConfig.exe files is missing. You need to replace it :
1. Download http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/a...-v2-x86-ENU.exe
2. Create a folder C:\msconfig
3. Give command WindowsXP-KB906569-v2-x86-ENU.exe /x:c:\msconfig
4. Copy all the files in C:\msconfig\sp2qfe to %windir%\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\

Now run the msconfig command again from the Run dialog.
