Use msconfig.exe to disable programs that start automatically with Windows

Posted on Friday, July 13, 2001 @ 09:43:57 PM CDT by David Yee [] [read 16928 times]

Tips: Windows-world
MSConfig is an excellent utility that comes with Windows 9x and Windows Me. It gives you a graphical front-end to editing win.ini, system.ini, environment variable settings, and more. It is probably most useful as a tool to easily disable certain programs that startup automatically when Windows starts- definitely is easier and faster than digging through the startup folder and the registry. Unfortunately Windows 2000 does not come with msconfig.

2001-10-02 10:26:5434I actually came across the ACTUAL msconfig.exe utility from windows 2000 and it works perfectly.. If interested e-mail
2001-07-16 01:16:0928You can actually run the msconfig.exe from Win9x/Me on 2000 and it seems to work fine. I got an "Unable to launch RegEnv32.exe" error but that didn't seem to affect its most useful function of changing startup programs.
