Change the CPU setting back to what it was before you changed it. Re-installing Windows will not fix hardware changes.

Don't touch things, if you don't know, what you're doing.

If you know, what you have changed, but don't know the default setting, trail and error is an option.

Next time, you may write down default settings, before changing things.

The Intel i7 2600 CPU has four cores which Windows sees as four processors.
Therefore, the number of processors in msconfig should be set to 4.

Set it back to 4 then click 'OK'
Then restart Windows.

All the settings in msconfig are for troubleshooting purposes only, not for making long-term or permanent changes.

If that fails, do a system restore to before you played with it and that should roll back system settings along with any system file and registry changes that may have been during that time (the usual reason fora system restore). Choose a restore point just before you made the change, or as close a possible before the messing around. If you performed any installs or updates, since then, they may need to be redone.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Go back to msconfig and switch to boot tab. Click advanced options/settings and uncheck every box you can find in there.
