  1. Hi to all.
    When entering MSCONFIG , on a friend's computer, at the run command, the system doesn't find it.
    What do I do now? I'm trying to see what is in their start up section as it takes forever to start up.
    Thanks in advance.

    Here again, Spybot SD 1.6 has a competent startup manager, complete with entries describing what the program is, and why one may or may not want it to run at boot.
    It's not quite "startup for dummies", but it comes close.

    :approve: I like this MUCH better that MSCONFIG as it avoids barking at startup and
    creating cause for concern.

    Spybot S&D is non-destructive and can be easily reversed latter :grinthumb
