  1. I'm having a strnge problem. I cannot launch msinfo32 in Windows XP! I tried using both msconfig and Help & Support but all that happens is another Help & Support window opens. I don't get an advanced system information window. I was wondering if it's because I have Lavalys Everest HE installed.

    Start/Run/type : Msinfo32.exe /Ok

    or go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 \Msinfo32.exe

    Blame, my bad, I meant I tried launching it from the Run command window (I absentmindedly wrote MSCONFIG!) Whenever I try, I just get the Help & Support window at the System Information page.

    Still can't launch msinfo32!

    Thanks Blame. It worked.

    Turns out it wasn't Lavalys Everest that caused the problem as I thought, it was TweakUI that I had installed.
