    Well, I was trying to make my pc run faster by deleting unnessesary files from the run menu entering msconfig. I must have deleted or unselected the wrong files because now my printer doesn't print, i have no sound from my speakers, i can't change my view from classic view back to XP view; there is no option to do so in the control panel. If anybody has a solution please let me know. Thank, Music17

    Change msconfig back. Undo the selective startup.

    Did you actually delete anything?

    If the SCU window is on "Normal Startup" and not "Selective Startup", that means you still have all entries in the Startup tab still checked.

    If one or more of the entries was unchecked, it would show it being in selective startup mode.

    You've obviously done something else that you can't remember.

    Have you tried using System Restore and selecting a restore date prior to when you did what you did, or has it been too long ago?

    You need to do start > run > msconfig > services tab > enable themes / (not sure on the name of the one for printers, possibly just printers)

    Or, just enable all services. Thats usually a good idea anyway, unless you really know what your doing.
