That's odd. I see that now. It was working yesterday when I posted. Here's the google cached link:

I thought it odd it was on an apple site. Maybe that's why they pulled it. I think it's a reprint of a microsoft KB article they removed because MS wants to make things difficult for XP users. Anyway it just some basic info on using msconfig.

Yeah if it is related to your previous posting I assume you want to see if disabling some startup items helps. Here's some info:

If you want to disable startup items, use CCleaner-Slim or CCleaner-Portable rather than MSCONFIG.
