Windows 2000 does not have the MSCONFIG program that was provided with Windows 98.

You can try using the older Windows 98 version of MSCONFIG.

Copy the file msconfig.exe from the c:\windows\system folder to the Windows 2000 c:\winnt\system32 folder.

Click | Start | Run | and type msconfig on the text box and click the OK button to start MSCONFIG
ignore the error messages you get about not finding the following files
config.sys
autoexec.bat
win.ini
system.ini
Click the startup tab
Check or Uncheck the check boxes of the programs you want to run or not run.

Also, go to: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. Startup Control Panel is like msconfig for windows 2000.

Good luck.

In Windows NT and 2000 the msconfig equivalent is winmsd.
Just type "winmsd" in a command line or in the run prompt.

btw: It doesn't give you everything that msconfig does, I think that there are a few things missing. On the other hand in some areas it gives you a little more. If you like right click on the "My computer" icon and select "Manage" you get even more information on the machine.
