Windows 7: Why does Windows 7 Repair disk never seem to repair anything?

The system repair disk attempts to fix a number of potential problems and certainly does not always work. It does give you direct access to command line utilities. For example if you a reasonably sure that you have a boot problem then "bootrec" can be used if repeated startup repairs fail. The ultimate fixit beyond that is using a reliable system image restore using the system repair disk if using Windows inbuilt imaging.

I did run the suggested repair routine and saw at conclusion that it offers to make an ISO cd. Very handy and thoughtful.

But my msconfig problem remains. How to I get to msconfig for Win7?

Alternately I may be able to fix my problem by simply deleting a stored file (the pesky ddl mentioned which would interfere with startup? unknown) to solve the problem.

Click on the Start Button and click on "Run..."
Type in msconfig and click OK

Thanks for the reply to an easy one. I hope inspecting the msconfig gets rid of the pesky file load.
