I'm not going to start an argument here and this will be my last post on the subject in this thread. I'm sorry, but Msconfig was designed to be a diagnostic utility. Permanent changes to startup items should be made with a utility designed for such uses (Starutp Control Panel, Autoruns, etc) or with the services.msc snap-in. The fact that you and many others misuse msconfig doesn't make it right. Please see the link I posted in my last reply. Also, I know that years ago Microsoft Technet had an in-depth white paper on the correct usage of msconfig which said precisely what I'm saying - I didn't make this up or grab the idea out of thin air
I don't really care what individuals do on their own system(s) - my only concern is when someone recommends something in a support forum (for others
to do) that is not correct.
Okay, that's my 4 cents worth. Carry on
