    You can also open it directly by providing msconfig command in RUN or start menu search box.

    Or save several clicks… Start > Type 'msconfig' and hit Enter.

    i have lost my system configuration due to moving some of my essential files from drive C mistakenly, it can't even be found in the administrative tools through Control Panel, the question is how do i retain it ever again?

    do need reinstall the windows completely or there must surely be an alternative option?

    i appreciate any recommendation;

    I'm doing this from my guest profile as I cannot get into my actual profile on the laptop, its asking for the main administrative password, in which I am entering, and it says the file cannot be found.

    Help please!!

    Claire – doesn't sound good, can you not get into your main account at all?
