I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right section, but please move if it isn't.

I recently read an article about how it was bad to use msconfig to control the start up processes. So, I went and changed the start up option from selective to normal. However, whenever I selected normal and pressed apply, the radio button selection would always jump back the to selective option.

Is there anywhere of making the computer boot up using the "normal" option?

Did you try unchecking the individual items checked...under Selective Startup...then changing to Normal?

Is there no way to change the "selective" option to "normal"?

Yes there is delete thesubkeys from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\microsoft\shared tools\MSCONFIG\startupreg

Delete all the subkeys under startupreg key.

You will get the Normal Start up.

I can't seem to delete the subkey within the key. There was an "Error deleting values." Is this a permissions issue? Any help in this area?
