This has been bleeping bugging me for a while now. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to configure msconfig to start to Normal Startup. This is what happens: If I select "Normal Startup", "/safeboot" and "minimal" are automatically selected. If I deselect "/safeboot", then "Selected Startup" is automatically selected. Furthermore, some of my services -- primarily my printer -- do not start and when try to start it manually, nothing happens. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sorry, I'm confused. Why are you messing with msconfig in the first place? And EXACTLY what have you done so far?

Thanks for your reply. I run msconfig to access the system configuration utility in attempt to fix the problem; I haven't done anything or changed any settings. The only areas I have tried to tinker with are under the "general" and "boot.ini" tabs, but nothing happens.

Well, something led you to believe you weren't starting in normal mode, correct? Please provide full and complete details of what is going on, how it started, etc. Thank you.

I think that's the end of that post. I sure would have like to known what he was trying to do.

Allen: What is the alternative to using msconfig to change startup programs. I read one of your posts before, but don't remember what you said to do. I know msconfig should be used as debug tool, so if I just want to stop a program at startup what is the provedure ?
