hi, i unwittingly disabled xp pro services last night in a bid to iron out a freezing problem. now i can't access the run command in the start menu to access msconfig to restore all the services i disabled. i have managed to enable the internet and a few network applications but i still can't activate the run command. can anyoe tell me what i might have done, and how to fix it

yes cool, i can. this is how i manged to reactivate the new#twqork setting so i could connec tot he internet, but i used admin tools in control panel to get here. if all i can do is go thru them one by one, then i guess tha's what i'll have to do , but thought there might be a quicker and easier route. i don't know what i need to enable to be able to access msconfig.
