msconfig will not open
Posted on 2004-03-21
I can not open msconfig. I can not open system file checker. I booted up on the XP disk and did a repair. Then I started getting several messages and the computer got real quirky. I was not having any problems that I noticed. I wanted to look at msconfig and do something.
Below are some of the problems I have had after I tried to boot up with XP and run the repair. Wish I had never started. The computer is still a little quirky, though the below warnings are less frequent. I would like to be able to open msconfig. My comments below were to Dell which did not help.
I have run the repair install. When I tried to run msconfig again, I got the following message:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the itme."
I am still also not able to get sfc to come up.
Also, I am getting the following that pops up now:
“You chose not to restore the original versions of the files. This may offect windows stability. Are you sure you want to keep these unrecognized file versions?”
Also I am getting another pop up: “
Files that are required for windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore original versions of this file.
Insert your XP Home Edition cd rom now.”
