msconfig not saving changes

Hey everyone, I have ran into an issue where msconfig does not give the option to restart, after I have made my changes and hit apply. Therefore when I reboot, msconfig is not saving my changes. Has anyone else ran into this problem, or any solutions as to what could be causing this. Any help would be appreciated

I don't know about the cause, but my first impulse would be to do a system restore to a time prior to when this first occurred.

You could also do a system file check at a command prompt, but I'm not sure it would find anything. The command is:

sfc /scannow
