    Normal Startup Won't Apply In msconfig


    It always stays on Selective startup. What's wrong?

    Do you have any programs in the startup list disabled? If you do, you will be in "selective startup". Open the task manager and go over to the startup tab. There's a column that says Enabled or Disabled.

    No, I don't.

    For those who weren't sure what I meant by System Configuration, I'm referring to msconfig
