System Configuration UtilityBy: Arie Slob
You can start the System Configuration Utility (Msconfig.exe) by selecting Start > Run and typing msconfig in the Open box.
According to Microsoft's information, the System Configuration Utility automates the routine troubleshooting steps that Microsoft Technical Support engineers use when diagnosing issues with the Windows 98 configuration.
Msconfig permits you to modify the system configuration through a process of elimination with check boxes. The System Configuration Utility also allowes you to create a backup copy of your system files before you begin a troubleshooting session. This is to ensure that the modifications made during your troubleshooting session can be reversed.
More Information on the procedures for troubleshooting are found in the Msconfig Help file.
