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
