Msconfig Is Not A Startup Manager

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

Just a minor technical note about MSCONFIG as quite a few users on various sites are using it as a Startup Manager. It is a Diagnostic Tool not a Startup Manager. If you're using it as a Startup Manager then you cannot use it as a Diagnostic Tool.  There is also a known issue where some settings once changed cannot be restored by MSCONFIG

If you want a good free Startup Manager then I would recommend using Autoruns for Windows - TechNet

Autoruns can easily manage what starts up. Then that frees up your MSCONFIG program to be used for what it's really meant for as a Diagnostic Tool.

I would recommend that you run MSCONFIG and set it to NORMAL. Then restart the computer immediately and after the restart go back into MSCONFIG and verify that it's still on NORMAL.
