Hi, trying to help a friend. How do I access msconfig on windows95. Cannot access from run. I'm on win98 and what I have on my computer does not come up on hers. Also cannot find disk cleanup. She has 90% of her resources free. I'm not sure what speed, hard drive, etc. she has. It's just that her computer is running very slow. I ran disk defrag and cleaned out her internet files. Any other suggestions? Really appreciate any help. Thanks

MSConfig doesn't exist on Windows 95. You can copy the msconfig.exe file from the Windows 98 computer to the Windows 95 computer, and it will work.

Literally because Win 95 does not have the System Configuration Utility nor does it have disk cleanup. I understand you can move the exe that starts the System Configuation Utility from a Win98 computer to a Win95 computer with a floppy so you can hasve that utility but can't remember the name of the exe file. In win95 you just have to clean up manually as far as I know.:rolleyes:

thank you for responding -- Is there a way to keep some of the programs from starting when turning computer on for win95? I believe that's what msconfig does in win98. She seems to have toooooo many upon startup.
