Problems W/ Msconfig In Winxp

First I have to say, that I am from Austria (Europe), so maybe my English isnt perfect.

 

 

Since the moment I reinstalled WinXP after I formatted my XP-partition in my XP-98 dual-boot-system, msconfig doesnt work in the right way anymore: When I run msconfig in WinXP I first get 4 error-messages, that the files autoexec.bat, config.sys, system.ini and win.ini cannot be read, because the system doesnt find the set path. After this I get this error message: "The procedure entry point GetProcessFlags could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll". After this my msconfig is a little incomplete (see screenshot): Only the tabs General and Startup (German: Allgemein and Autostart) are still there, and in Startup there are not all startup-programs I have.

 

Can anyone please help me?

would it normally look like this?

 

Also have you tried putting the WinXP cd in and restarting to the disk and selecting "repair the selected drive" - or something like that?

 

I didnt try to repar the drive and I will not do it, because I got this problem directly after formatting and reinstalling, so I dont think, that this wll help.:

 

I have WinXP configured to use the classical style, because I dont like the XP-style. When I change it to XP-style, it looks like this:

First I have to say, that C:\ is used for Win98 on my system and D:\ for WinXP.

 

I found out, that the msconfig doesnt exist in my D:\WINDOWS\system32 folder and that the path-variable was set to C:\ and D:\ directories, so I used the Win98 msconfig all the time. Now I use the XP-version, which I copied from the D:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache folder and everything works fine now. :D
