Thanks, but unfortunately it didn't do what I wanted.

.
When I erter "run/MSCONFIG" I get the message msconfig can not be found.

I did a search and found msconfig.exe in prefetch. Clicking on it in the search window works OK, but how do I get it back into "RUN" ?

Sounds like it may have gotten lost some how, msconfig should be in the following path

C:\Windows\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries

click start/run and copy & paste the path into run, hit enter, the msconfig.exe should be there.

Go to This site here (http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/01/11/how-to-fix-windows-cannot-find-msconfig-error-at-run-command/) it tells you how to fix the problem.

You're not literally entering run/msconfig into the run box are you?

You just want to enter msconfig into the run box.

No. I may be stupid, but I'm not silly

If you still having trouble with "run msconfig"

find it in search again - click to highlight and right click "copy"

Navigate to C:\Windows\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries and right click "paste"

now try msconfig in the run box

It is in the PC health folder, But it is not in the registry "app parths"

How do I add it?

run regedit and navigate to here :

( *Edit* had the "s" in paths in the wrong place! - now corrected)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\App Paths\MSCONFIG.EXE

and the path there should be

C:\WINDOWS\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\msconfig.exe
