How to restore msconfig utilities in wondows?

How to restore msconfig utilities in wondows?

msconfig+This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer please contact your systems adminisrator+windows XP


Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:


Look in the right pane for a value called DisallowRun. If it exists, double click it and set it to 0 (zero).

Additionally, there should be a DisallowRun subkey. In this key is the list of applications that you're not allowed to run.


Unless it is truly missing, the file is at: X:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\msconfig.exe (replace the X with your drive letter upon which Windows is installed).

C. If you truly have to completely re-install XP, first you must either:

(1) Intergrate (slipstream) SP2 with XP onto one CD. I recommend you do this with a free little program named "AutoStreamer". Just type "slipstreaming XP" and/or "AutoStreamer" into Google and you find plenty of sites with instructions/comments.

(2) Uninstall SP2, install XP, then reinstall SP2.
