When I go to Run and winini or msconfig I get a invalid file path incorrect notice.  Are these files hidden and if so how to I get to them.  I am trying to change the system tray startup items.

What version of Windows are you using? XP, 2000, 9X, etc.
When you attempt to execute the msconfig from the run command, are you logged in as an administrator or a user that is part of the administrative group to the machine?
And have you tried to launch the file from it's path, if XP go to c:\WINDOWS\pchealth\hlpctr\binaries  ?

Maybe go to run, browse and look to the folder above.
Whichever the case, it still presents the issue that you are unable to launch msconfig fom a run command, assuming it's an XP or 2K OS.

Hi Marget, hello everyone
The reference to the path within the registry may be wrong.

Check this location in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\MSCONFIG.EXE

In the right pane, next to Default, it should show:

c:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\
MSConfig.exe

Best Regards,
Ibrahim
