    It could be that some malicious program has deleted it or renamed it. Have you checked for virus' and malware/spyware?

    Do a search on the C: drive for "msconfig" and see if anything shows up.

    Are you running Win2000 by chance?

    Check this website out.

    They have downloads for the msconfig executable in Win 95, and 2000. Not sure how it works exactly, I dont know if they are the same apps as in XP and 98, maybe they're ported, I dunno, but they definetly work. I use the 2k version on two of my workstations at work.
