    I'm running Win 2000 and had to reformat..Unfortunately
    When I did, MsCon.exe went with it...(I KNOW...Win 2K
    DON'T have MsCon)...HOWEVER, I talked with you guys
    month or two ago, and you told me where to get the
    program( probably from an XP package or somthing)...
    Anyway, tried CNET DL's and can't find it...Whereaway
    do I voyage to find it...???? (NOT to be confused with
    Win 98 MsConfig.exe, which I'm using NOW...It DOES
    work on Win 2k but my nerd says not to use it TOOO
    much or it'll blow somthing)( I should say it works after
    I reset all kinds of alarms half a dozen times)

    Hi Sream...More problems....When you sent me
    the html format with the MsConfig.exe (in BLUE)
    for Win 2000, I moused on the link and no go...
    Didn't come up..ALSO, downloaded the attachment
    (which was the same) and moused on the BLUE
    line and STILL no go..Can you TYPE in a URL for
    the MsConfig (for Win 2000, which (i think) comes
    from Win XO???)....Definately need the typed URL
    as for some reason the blue lines don't work on
    my computer and my nerd is in the Air Force and
    out blowing things up).....Thanks much

    Hi james S

    Let me get this right - you can't click on links - you have to cut and paste them - so you want the URL to msconfig for Win2000 so that you can cut and paste it ?

    Hi james S

    Assuming I have it right in the above post - this is the URL - replace the *'s with t's

    h**p://www2.whidbey.com/djdenham/File_store/XP%20Version/MSCONFIG.EXE

    --------------------------
    This might cure your inability to click links problem - this is for win98 but should work on win2000

    Go to Start/run, and type SFC.
    Choose 'Extract One File From Installation Disk'.
    Type oleaut32.dll, not worrying about its location. Then, click Start.

    Next to 'Restore From', type in or browse for the file’s location, which is probably in the Win98 folder of your installation CD-ROM (typically D:\Win98), or in your Windows\Options\Cabs folder, as the case may be.

    Then, next to 'Save File In', enter C:\Windows\System, and click OK. System File Checker looks for the file, saves it as you requested, and then tells you that 'the file has been successfully extracted'.

    Reboot, and tell us whether that solves your problem.
