Unable To Open Msconfig Or System Information?
I cannot open msconfig on my computer! Whenever I type in "msconfig" in the Run box, it says it cannot find it.And whenever I open System Information, it says that I need to start the service "Help and Support", but in the Services, there is no "Help and Support". I use SIW now, but I still wanna know why it won't work.

Cannot Use Open With Command In Shell To Open Files
Hi, I am having a weird problem. I cannot change what programs I use by defualt to open windows files. It does not matter whether I right click on a certain file and choose open with or if I use the tools option in the folder menu. This is what happens. I want to open a .jpg file with picassa photo viewer. I right click the .jpg file and choose open with. I then click browse to locate the .exe file that will open it. Well once I click it I get sent back to the open with window and nothing has changed. The .jpg file will not open with any program that can open it and it will not add the .exe file into the window. This is a bit frustrating as I cannot change what opens certain windows files by default. This goes for any type of file I try to open with any program.

Unable To Run MSCONFIG
I used to be able to run MSCONFIG and now I can't. I've tried the Start/Run thing several times. I've downloaded an XP version, and copied it to the WindowsSystem folder and tried it from there too, but I can't even get that to run.

Unable To Change Msconfig Startup
I have a Windows XP Home installation and the main account is set as an administrator account.when we log into this account the command prompt window is displayed, but not with a c prompt and there is nothing we can do to exit it (i.e unable to type exit)

On looking at the startup options in msconfig, which is what's causing the command prompt window to open:

Startup Item: svchost

Command: C:windowssystem32driverssvchost.exe
Location: HKCUSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrenVersionRun

So using the account that is in the administrators group I tried to deselect it but when clicking Ok or Apply I get this message:

Error: An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change the service. You man need to log on using and Administrator account the make the specified changes.

But I am using an Admin account...!?!?

So I tried rebooting into safe mode, then as the 'Official' Admin account to change it but when I login as the Administrator the svchost isn't in the start up options?

There are a couple of other accounts that are just standard accounts and they don't have the svchost on their startup.

Unable To Run MSCONFIG In Limited User?
I'm able to run MSCONFIG just fine as administrator,but I can't run it as limited user.The message is "An access denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an administrator account".But I'm pretty sure I've previously run MSCONFIG as limited user. Is my memory wrong, or is something wrong?

Command Prompt Closes After Open It
I have a server at my home network, running windows XP Pro SP2, and it is configured with 2 users. One Administrator and one user. When I connect using remote desktop, I usually connect as the user (Not Administrator), but lately the command prompt has stopped working on this account. When I type cmd in the run-window, command prompt opens, and about 1/2 sec later, it's closed. If I connect as the Administrator, this problems doesn't exist.I have scanned for viruses, using both my installed Norton Internet Security package, and also using Symantec's online virus-scan. No virus found.

Folders Open Command Window Not Apps
I must have screwed something up.some but not all of my folders open a command prompt window. I managed to change them to an explorer window instead, but in file type, I can figure out how to get "open" back as the default when I click on these folders. The right click menu either has expand greyed out, or doesn't have it at all. Open is the third item, and find first (now) with command window second. How do I reset these? And, any idea what would have messed them up? I did start sharing with my son's computer and I downloaded firefox 1.0.3.

Config System Missing / Unable To Go To Command Prompt?
I am one of the many who had succumbed to this problem: C:WINDOWSsystem32configSYSTEM missing or corrupt. I am running windows XP home edition on an HP Dv2000 notebook, and have tried almost everything. Repair console wont work as is says it cannot find hard drive, and yet when I go into Bios it says it is there (Notebook HDD) (a SATA btw) . Running a check on the hard drive yeilds nothing but a fit bill of health. I cannot access command prompt, or any safe mode. Running a HP recovery install is also fixing nothing. I am stuck with a laptop that just keeps cycling around in circles, constantly rebooting itself.

Filter A Folder - Special Command To Type At The Command Prompt?
I would like to know if this can be done in win xp environment. say I have a folder, A, of pictures only and they all have file extensions jpg eg abc.jpg, xyz.jpg. say I have a second folder, B, which contains all the files of A(if you ignore extensions) and more(but all are pictures.) But all the files in B has extensions NEF instead of jpg eg abc.NEF, efg.NEF, xyz.NEF. My idea is to extract all the files from B that has the same the name as A(ignoring extensions) and either move or copy to a separate folder ie if A contains abc.jpg, xyz.jpg then abc.NEF and xyz.NEF will be extracted and moved/copied to a new folder. I'm not sure where to start. is there a program out there that can do this? or there's a special command to type at the command prompt?

Command Prompt Error - 'command' Is Not Recognized?
Previously I have been doing work that requires me to unplug my network connection and I need to check my IP address each time I plug it in again. I guess it's not set for static IP.Anyways to do this I usually go into Command Prompt and type 'ipconfig'Now however I just get "'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".The directory is the same as its always been, I can change it but it doesn't seem to matter what it is.I've checked many other posts and is there something possibly wrong with my PATH variable? I used the command 'echo %PATH%' and it works, the list it gives is very garbled however.

Unable To Access The "Run" Command From The Start Menu?
I can't access the "Run" command from the start menu. When I click on it windows bring up a message box saying "Windows can not create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?" Even if I click yes, the shortcut doesn't do anything. I can still access the run command by hitting the windows button + r. But it is annoying not having that function when needed... No virii or spyware involved. I believe it's a registry issue, but I've no idea were to correct the issue and I can't find any info on the net[which is a first].

Unable To Install SP4 - FTP Is Open Or In Use
Running a Windows 2000 machine. Machine came with W2k installed 2 years ago. Have all other windows updates installed. Getting this error when trying to install Service Pack 4 - The file c:windowssystem32ftp.exe is open or in use by another application. The taskmanager does not show any FTP specifically running. So I downloaded SP4 to my hard drive so I wouldn't have to get on the internet, and rebooted in safe mode. Then ran SP4 update from my hard drive but I still got the same FTP error. How do I find this FTP process and stop it?
