I cannot run Msconfig in Normal Mode, but can in Safe Mode. There are 2 instances of msconfig on my computer; C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386, & C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache. Should it be in C:WINDOWS\System32 ?
I run a WinXP SP3, fully pathed, with Outpost Firewall, & Symantec Endpoint Antivirus real-time.
My machine is an IBM Thincentre, P4, with 2GB Ram.
I run as Adminstrator.
Yes, it should be located in %systemroot%\system32 directory.
From the command line;
should sort it.

Thanks to both of u for replying.
I also do have an instance of msconfig in c:\windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries.
I also did a scan of the system files, to no avail.
Maybe it's a program that's blocking its running in normal mode ?
Also, are there any particular services that need to be enabled for msconfig to run ?
My Antivirus is updated on a daily basis, & I run a full system scan every week, so it couldn't/shouldn't be a virus ( as a lot of posts on the net suggest ). Also, I'm able to run regedit, & task manager without a problem.
