If System Configuration Utility doesn't run at startup, can I run it later?

    Dell Optiplex running WinXP Pro from a reinstallation, not OEM

    At startup I always get a window telling me I have "used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts", which is totally untrue.

    It then offers me a box to check to "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts". I haven't checked the box (yet) because I'm afraid I won't be able to ever launch the Utility. So my question is: if I check the box to keep ity from launching at startup, will I be able to run it later run/msconfig?

    yes you can check the box so that this doesnt show on startup all the time and you can run msconfig at any time via the run option in your start menu.
