    When I boot up I get the following message after the desktop initializes:

    ""You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way windows starts.

    The system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or start up mode, causing this message to be displayed every time windows starts up.

    Choose the normal start up mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system configuration utility.""

    I need to know how to get to the general tab to make the changes mentioned above. I have no idea where this utility or the general tab is. All help appreciated.

    When that message appears, click the "don't show this message again" box.

    Anytime you use MSCONFIG to UNselect startup apps, you get this (annoying) message.
