    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 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.

    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

    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
