MSCONFIG windows 7


I have too many programs that open when I start the computer. In WindowsXP I was able to Start-run and type msconfig to change the start up options. I cannot find this option Windows 7.
I am particularly bothered by windows live every time I start the computer

My System
It's in Win 7 - Pro at least - your version?

To show Run on the Start Menu .....

Right click Taskbar > Properties > Start Menu > Customise and scroll down to Run command and place a check mark in the box.

Start up windows 7


Thanks _I was also looking around and noted when I press the start up button ,at the bottom was "search programs and files".If you type in MSCONFIG it also takes you to the start up configuration and you can remove programs

Yes, that Search box saves ferreting in the bowels of Windows to find something as straightforward as, say, Device Manager - or msconfig
