Windows 7: How do I repair msconfig?

Having an AV running is not enough. I specifically said you need to run at the minimum Malwarebytes
and SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloads which you ignored. Yet your system is not clean until those scans say so.

You don't need to work with us if you don't want the problem fixed, but I think it needs to be said for the record that you didn't make the effort because we will not quit until its solved and we were still waiting for your responses at the starting gate.

But the problem is fixed! Use autoruns. It might even be useful for others how stumble upon this thread.

How exactly does using AutoRuns repair msconfig, which is an important System component that needs to be functioning correctly to know that there might not be cascading failure?

We don't do things halfway here and call it good. Countless others will find this thread in searches and see sloppy work well beneath the standards of the top tech forum in history. So we want to complete the record as well as fix your issue.

The solutions in this, and an other forum, were moving towards a reinstall - hence my decision to rollback to a clonezilla disk image when I have an opportunity.

I do appreciate all the time and help though.
Hence you still have issues. Hopefully you will answer the questions if you really desire help for a correct fix, not some shoddy workaround.

If your system specs are correct, you haven't installed w7 SP1.
