How do I get msconfig in Windows 2000

Recommended Posts

I have been so used to Windows XP for so long now I have forgot the command for MSConfig in Windows 2000. I am doing this on my friends comp (really old but still does what he needs) because it starts up slow and he wants to turn off all the extra programs that start up and cause a slow start up. So if someone could let me know the run command for this in windows 2000 that would be great. Thanks :)

Use Hijack This. Win 2000 doesn't have that feature built-in.

There is a real simple way. Take a jump drive and copy the "msconfig" off a windows xp machine and place it on the Windows 2000 machine. And then you can then use msconfig.

 

Good Day

I always used the advanced options in spybot s&d, there is something in there about startup programs. I have also used autoruns, which works well.

Wow...that's a extremly easy way to go about it. Awesome! Thanks!

 

Hrm...odd thing tho...that site says get it from c:\windows\system and it wasn't there so I did a search and on both of my comps with XP installed it has it in the folder C:\WINDOWS\pchealth\helpctr\binaries so if you can't find it under the system folder try this.
