Apparently, I had this problem as well. I asked my son to run the scanner for me while I was at work, and he deleted the file and the quarantine file. When he got home, he told me there had been a trojan agent called msconfig.exe found.

Does anyone know how I can restore msconfig to my system? I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-Bit on a Dell XPS.

System restore monitors .exe files. I would do a restore to the point just before msconfig.exe was removed.

I hope you went easy on him. :D

I did the system restore, and now I have other problems. MSConfig is back, but it won't run properly; a command prompt window pops up for a second, then closes. Then nothing. I will look into this further, and start another post with relevant logs if I need more help. Thanks for everyone's help.

You could undo the system restore and run the system file checker.

sfc /scannow
/Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files.

Are you sure your system is clean?

I've tried the System File Checker already. It detected errors, but was unable to fix them either before or after system restore.

And, no, I'm not sure my system is clean anymore. I haven't noticed any other problems, though, so like I said - I'll try some other things and if I still can't fix it, I'll post in a new thread with all of the appropriate logs.
