Whether I sign on as a User or as the Administrator and key in "msconfig" the following error message appears: "System Configuration Utility An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes."
I called the computer manufacturer and spoke with a tech. He walked me through several things, but none of them worked.
Signing on in Safe Mode and in Safe Mode with Networking I can access msconfig. I've gone into the Services tab and checked to remove all Microsoft items. I can identify four of the five non-Window applications as being legitimate. The one I cannot identify is: PrismXL from New Boundary Technology. I've unchecked that, but still cannot access msconfig in regular Windows boot-up.
Has anyone seen this particular error message, and if so what is the solution? Thank you.
