Run MSCONFIG


F

Fabrizio

Hello,
I have a question for you. Probably I wrong something, and delete something
in reg, and now I cannot run MSCONFIG from start run eccc....
When I do this command, error window open told me that this command don't
find MSCONFIG, but in real it's is in the right folder. I can run it only
write the right path. How I can rebuilt the fast command only write in the
window MSCONFIG and run it ?

Thanks Fabrizio

Stuff like that happens when you muck around in the registry and don't know
what your doing. Did you make a backup of the reg key before you deleted it?

Is there any reason you can't restore the registry from the backup you
made before editing?

See if a System Restore point (created from the day before you made the
registry change) can solve the problem.

System Restore point are usually made automatically Windows on a daily
basis, no action required on your part to create a restore point.

To see if a restore point is available:
Log on to Windows as Administrator or an account that has Administrator
rights .
Click Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools, then click System
Restore.
Next on the Welcome to System Restore window, click the 'Restore my computer
to an earlier time' option
(Note: this option may already be selected), and then click Next.
On the Select a Restore Point window, use the calendar to select a date
previous to the day the change
or problem occurred. Then to the right of the calendar box, click a restore
point or one of the
points in the list, and then click Next.
Note: A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes
that System Restore will
make. Click OK.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next.
System Restore will now restore Windows XP's configuration, and then restart
the computer.
Finally log back on to the computer (using the same Admin account).
The 'System Restore Restoration Complete window' appears.
Click OK.
