new msconfig tab

Several people have blogged about the new addon to msconfig that enables you to run extra tools from within msconfig. This thing should really be part of windows update to make life easier for everyone (or rather the techies amongst us who support other people’s machines). Incidentally I was asked to validate my copy of Windows XP AGAIN – I don’t know how many times I’ve had to do this – thought it was meant to be a one off thing.

    While Microsoft’s MSCONFIG is a good program that helps diagnose system configuration issues; you must be extremely careful when using the System Configuration Utility (msconfig.exe) on Windows XP.

    Please read Microsoft’s MSCONFIG Troubleshooting Guide first — you can easily inadvertently disable program/services that may be necessary to boot your computer! If possible, try to use Microsoft’s Service Management Console (services.msc) which prevents you from doing this!
