MSCONFIG startup settings not staying ?
Posted on 2006-05-05
Ok, this is an odd one ...
I have always used the trick of MSCONFIG and going to the startup tab and disable all the junk that boggs down my computer at startup. I am working on a windows xp computer - IBM thinkpad t40 to be exact - and its just dogging at start up. When i go to msconfig, and uncheck programs if i reboot, and go back in , they are all checked again ?
I tried to enable bootlogging to see what is going on, but its not creating a bootlog.txt.
Also, its defaulting to selective startup - wondering if that is because i have unchecked different items on the startup tab. We are also running Novell Client 4.91 sp2 so I know that is causing some issue, but I am logging in as a local user - not into Novell - trying to narrow down where to start.
1.) Where in the registry would hold all these items at start up and could i just delete them out of there ?
Is there a reason why MSCONFIG is not staying set ?
