I'm on my friend's laptop (HP Omnibook) running Win2000 Pro. The Microsoft Magnifier keeps loading when we start up windoze. Now none of us here are blind or old so have no need of this annoying program. When I try to run msconfig it says "Cannot find the file msconfig (or one of its components)". Please help! Thanks!

Hi chipper,

For the Magnifier:
Goto Start->Programs->Accessories->Accessiblity->Utility Manager
In the Utility Manager Windows, Click on Magnifier and then uncheck the "Start automatically when I login" option.



For the msconfig problem:
Download the attached msconfig.zip file and unzip it. Double-click on the extracted msconfig.reg file to add it to the registry. Reboot. Try and see if msconfig works.

Hi chipper,

Try the following steps:
Start -> Run
Type: sfc /SCANNOW
Press <enter>.
This will run the the System File Checker, which will look for corrupt\missing system files.

If the System File Checker does'nt find any problems; when you post back can you confirm that his Windows is installed in c:\windows and not in some other folder.
