A new tab for “MSCONFIG”

October 6th, 2005 by Patrick S

Surly you know good old faithfull “MSCONFIG” Well today there has been an update for it!
Install this update to add a Tools tab to the System Configuration Utility (msconfig.exe).
The Tools tab will allow further diagnostic tools to be launched from within the System Configuration Utility.
!There are more powerfull tools of course but this may come in handy, pitty it won’t work to a remote XP system.

MSBLOG tools menu

DOWNLOAD It Here

Its pretty handy for those Problem solvers out there!

*****************************************************************************

“While Microsoft’s MSCONFIG is a good program that helps diagnose system configuration issues; you must be extremely careful when using the System Configuration Utility (msconfig.exe) on Windows XP.

Please read Microsoft’s MSCONFIG Troubleshooting Guide first — you can easily inadvertently disable program/services that may be necessary to boot your computer! If possible, try to use Microsoft’s Service Management Console (services.msc) which prevents you from doing this! “
