Do other RUN commands work, like

dxdiag

desk.cpl

You could right click on the msconfig file,
then click "Create Shortcut",
then the shortcut should be place on your Desktop.

When I type msconfig and Click OK in the Run box, I get the following error message:


Windows cannot find 'Misconfig'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again.

My other RUN commands work fine so far as I can tell. I would rather fix the problem RUN & Msconfig then using a workaround like creating a shortcut .

I assume you know where msconfig is located on system drive.

So I presume the Registry has changed. Find the following ----

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\MSCONFIG.EXE

Then make sure the Data points to ----
C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe
