    Msconfig is great with one exception: In 2k/XP, it pops up a confirmation message on restart... The problem is that if you happen to login next time with non-admin user, the popup will continue everytime...

    In AutoPatcher, there is a tool installed called Startup control panel... This will be available in the Control Panel. Try it out... It is very easy to use...

    Also, many people advise against modifying services settings through msconfig... Dont remember why exactly... For that, use services.msc command at run...
