    Sorry to be asking so elementary a question:
    what is the executable I should RUN to access the windows configuration tabs?

    I must have used it hundreds of times to keep my boot times short, but it has been displaced from the RUN history list by many msiexec commands and I simply cannot recall it, neither do the .exe filenames in c:\windows, \windows\system, nor \windows\system32 seem to ring the right bell in my poor old head.
    All help gratefully received!

    Probably you are referring to MSCONFIG.EXE (which is cunningly concealed in C:\Windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries !). You can just put MSCONFIG in the Run box, as you know.

    You might like to look at Autoruns, which is more geeky, but gives you a window whose size can be increased to give lots more information than MSCONFIG. The Logon tab is probably adequate.
