Hi, a friend at work has said he cant find msconfig by typing it into 'run'. I've Googled it+one answer says it could be caused by Spyware? I gave him SuperAntispyware but he never used it as he says he has Norton 2010 'that has antispyware with it'? Does it? Could this msconfif problem be caused by Spyware?
No single antispyware software will find all 'nasties'.
If he is wise he will run SuperAntispyware (fully updated) and maybe another besides (Spybot S&D/Spyware Terminator) at least to check for anything on his PC.
If he does find any malware he should not only remove it but also clear his System Restore as it can 'hide' here and reinfect.
I have never heard of msconfig only being affected but that doesn't mean it can't be. I would suggest the first check - after running the above - should be sfc/ scannow (note the space) click here to check for damaged files.
