Do you mean msconfig? Just type that into the Run box and hit Enter

If it is msconfig you are referring to, you need to be careful what you disable in that application, you can really screw your system up if you disable the wrong process, perhaps to the point where you can't boot Windows. Do a google search with each process to see if it can be disabled or not, before doing so.

Disabling startup items from msconfig should not affect playing online games,however can you tell us exactly what you have disabled ?

If you have disabled any services we need to know what ones as these maybe needed.

More to the point,i would guess your problem is your firewall,are you using the Vista firewall or a third party firewall such as kerio/Zonealarm/Comodo etc.

What online game are you trying to access ?
