Isn’t MSCONFIG great?

In which of these situations would you NOT use MSCONFIG?

A) You need to troubleshoot programs that start during the boot process

B) You need to configure a drive partition

C) You need a central point to launch other tools, such as the registry editor.

D) You need to disable certain services from starting

E) You need a gift recommendation for a cousin’s birthday. A real gift, not like last year when the police were called (all charges were eventually dropped).

The answer: B) You need to configure a drive partition (and yes, E).

Although MSCONFIG can launch other applications (such as Computer Management), it cannot make any changes to your drive partitions.
