So the rem line caused this is what you are saying?
If that is the case then going back into the msconfig and rchecking that line should fix the problem.
If you boot into administrator profile in normal mode can you egt into msconfig?
If not reboot and go into Safe Mode
This defaults to the administrator profile and should allow you then to get to the msconfig startup tab.

The entry is now gone after doing using the autoruns program and deleting the Microsoft Office from the "Programs" "Startup". I can no longer make any changes to the MSCONFIG STARTUP. It won't recognize me as Administrator anymore. Really don't know why. I am the administrator and User profiles show that I have administrator rights but it's not giving me these rights when I try to make changes. I will try it in SAFE MODE, although I would still like to fix this and be able to work in admin mode as I should be able. I will try it and get back to you.

In normal mode you have Administrator Rights
In Safe Mode you are the Administrator

Okay, but nothing changed in safe mode. I've wiped everything clean and started over. Running well now. Thanks for your noble efforts.
