MSCONFIG tool will let you set how to startup your machine. Very nice and easy way to diagnose problems on your Windows XP machine.
To start the System Configuration utility, click Start, click Run, type msconfig in the Open box, and then click OK.
So far there were six tabs in the System Configuration Utility.These include :-General,SYSTEM.INI,WIN.INI,BOOT.INI,Services,and Startup
