MSCONFIG won't apply!!!
Feb 9, 2010, 11:49 PM
I have been messing around with MSCONFIG recently and I changed things around with my boot so that it's quicker. That worked really well and stays how I set it.
On the other hand I noticed that for Startup it is set to selective startup. I figured it should be on Normal startup so I changed it and applied the change.
Now I notice that whenever I go back it is changed back to selective startup. It won't stay changed.
Anyone know what's going on or what I can do to fix this?

The changes were made under the "General" tab. Just in case I wasn't clear on that.

If you disable services or programs from starting, that is 'selective startup.' Normal startup includes all services and programs.
Changes in msconfig now BSOD
Programs not starting on boot
Can I disable Drive in Dual Boot ?
MSCONFIG does not apply setting

Normal startup is the one set default by system!
When you change bit from it , becomes Selective start up (like customized).
