Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
"In Windows 2000 and Windows 9x, there was no embedded support, but there are tools available."
If I understand you correctly, are you saying that msconfig.exe is not available in those versions of Windows? If so, then I would have to disagree. I have used msconfig in both Win98 and WinXP. It is not available in Win2k and Win95, though.

msconfig for Win2K:

Ger's System Configuration Utility (a clone of msconfig) for Win95:
There's an excellent and free tool to see and modify the startup programs. It's called Startup Control Panel and is at http://mlin.net/ . You can add it to your other control panels or run as a regular program.
i agreed that win 98 has msconfig
Not sure if anyone can help me, but I need to disable wizards for both adaware and pop-up stoppers that appear during every single start up of my pc. They appeared after I downloaded a fileshare program through kazaa and so far I think I've tried absolutely EVERYTHING to get rid of them. Have Windows 2000, so unable to run msconfig. Any ideas? :(
A spyware cleaner like Spybot Search and Destroy, or AdAware should clean you right up. Links on my recommendations pages: http://recommend.pugetsoundsoftware.com
can any one explain abt HDD password?
You'll have to be a little more complete. What HDD password? Where are you seeing this?
whenever i login to my use account in my network, my computer using windows2000NT shows a popup message reg678.dll missing. How to solve this problem?
Moreover, when i login IE automatically opens up. How to stop it. If i remove from startup, can i use IE after i login. Most of time when i login it fails to run the network script and i am not able to acess the net via my organisation network. I need to boot again and it takes two three trials to get it done. how to fix it.
thax for ur help in advance
reg678.dll is the result of a virus. Your other symptoms feel like spyware. You should get updated anti-virus and anti-spyware software and databases, and scan. Recommendations: http://ask-leo.com/d-recommend
