Microsoft has released an updated version of their System Configuration Utility (msconfig.exe) for Windows XP. The System Configuration utility automates the routine troubleshooting steps used when diagnosing system configuration issues.
This adds a Tools Tab allowing further diagnostic tools to be launched from within the System Configuration Utility.
While Microsoft has a “How to troubleshoot using MSCONFIG” document, I can not stress that you must be extremely careful when using msconfig, you can easily inadvertently disable services that may be vital to boot your system!
NOTE: The only reported problem is that you may still have the older version of MSCONFIG installed (you’ll need to ensure you’re running the newer version, and/or delete the older version.)
NOTE: This download requires Windows Genuine Advantage.
