|chef124s is talking about "Services".|
Msconfig is not the best place to make changes to Services. They are part of Administrative Tools, although services.msc in the Run box will get you there. This gives various options ie Auto / Manual / Enable / Disable / Start / Stop. Msconfig only shows whether they are running, ie a Service can be ticked but not actually running.
On mine all ticks in msconfig are green in the General, Services and Startup menus but black in the two ini files (XP Home SP3).
Please come back and let us know the outcome.
