    Hi, I downloaded the msconfig program which was posted here. It states to download to C:\WINNT\system32 and then type msconfig in run, but I can't find winnt\system 32. I have windows 2000 proffessional. Thankyou for any help.

    Send it to windows/system32 or whatever your windows directory is called. Then go to run and type msconfig.

    I recieved an e-mail telling me that i had a virus on my comp and that i should delete the file "jdbmgr.exe" what does the c:\winnt\system32 do? because when i searched for "jdbmgr.exe" that is where it was located...but i think it is a hoax because that file has a modify date that is a couple years old.

    You should never believe what you read in an e-mail. I went to Symantec Security Response and searched for "jdbmgr.exe" and nothing came so chances are it is a hoax. The system32 directory contains files that are required for windows and all of its applications to work properly (if not to run them). You should never edit them without double checking and asking knowledgable people before touching it and also backing up the files you delete/edit. Just to be safe, go to Housecall and do a virus scan.

    Hint: Do NOT use "msconfig" to disable services, type "services.msc" in the Run box instead! This way you cannot disable services needed for operation of the machine.
