|Msconfig is actually a diagnostic tool and there are drawbacks to using it as facility to "permanently" disable things. For example, if you uninstall something which is disabled in msconfig it can leave registry entries in place and cause other issues. |
However, msconfig might well find the culprit, which you can then either uninstall, or take whatever permanent action is necessary. "Autoruns for Windows", which I referred to in #9, does much the same thing, except that every startup item is shown.
The poster has not been back since 2 June so perhaps the problem has now been solved.
