Try the following Microsoft on-line scan using Internet Explorer.

Windows One Care Free Scan
Go to Windows Live Onecare Free Scan
It will say "Get a free PC safety scan"
http://safety.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm

Make sure you click "Full Service Scan" in the middle of the page and
not the "Try It Now Free" on the right side.

Allow it to download an Active X component.
Choose "Complete Scan" in the window that opens
Click "Next"
Do not click on anything else that offers you a free trial or to sign up if you live in the US.

Allow it to scan - it may take quite, maybe two hours or so depending on how big your hard drive is and how fragmented your registry and drive are.

Unless you know exactly what you are doing you should never change or stop anything using msconfig. You can hose your entire operating system stopping a necessary Windows process.

How long is a "few" weeks ago? Is it more than three weeks?

If it is less than three weeks use Windows System Restore to return your system state to its working condition.

click start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Pick the oldest date in bold numbers and then follow the directions on-screen.

If you do not have a restore date old enough boot into safe mode and choose "last Known Good Configuration"

If neither of those work, and you can't remember what you stopped using msconfig you may have to reinstall Windows.

Here's a free, easy to use tool that will allow you to change your Startups (IMO it's better than msconfig): http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

It will put an icon in your Control Panel called Startup. With it you can disable/enable items in your startups - and can even delete them if necessary.

There's other, more advanced tools available - but I find this the easiest to use for routine startup research.

When you open it, give us a list of the one's that are disabled (those are the one's listed in the various tabs that don't have checkmarks in the boxes). That'll give a clue about where to start.

Yes - it is a startup manager.

The one I recommend is Startup Inspector though because it better identifies the startup programs connected with the entries.

Startup Inspector freeware (manages startup menu helps you identify aps in the startup menu so you can disable unnecessary programs from running in the background when they are not needed)

And

Startup Monitor (a small freeware ap available on the same page to notify you and require your permission for any program to add itself to your startup menu)

I use Mike Lin's Startup CPL to manage my startups quickly.

I use Autoruns to solve more difficult problems with startups (I have both on my system).
I have used Startup Inspector and find it to be similar to Autoruns.

My point is that StartupCPL is much more like msconfig than it is like Autoruns or Startup Inspector. So, it's easier to use than the others for most folks (but it's also less powerful).
