    Add msconfig to Windows 2000

    Most users know that msconfig comes installed on windows 98 Me Xp Etc but it is no where to be found in windows 2000.

    So with this trick you can install it in windows 2000 and change what programs start up etc.


    First thing you need to do is browse or search for msconfig.exe, you may have to go to the folder options and check the (show hidden files and folders and the other two options under that) once you have found it make a copy of the file
    Then copy the msconfig file into the following directory in windows 2000 C:\winnt\system32 then go to run and type in msconfig and change what files startup Etc

    thats retty nice and real simple too, if i had win2k i would have done that right now
    ...so pretty much you could manually install many other components that win2k doesnt have, now that u mention installing stuff like msconfig on win2k...i was wondering if it would be possible to install the 'systeminfo' command in command promt on WinXP home

    do you need to copy it from a windows xp system, or is it already present in windows 2000?
    this might be usefull to clear out in your trick for other users...

    just a thought....

    but nice trick b.t.w
