Xp problem after using msconfig

  heepster 21:31 07 Feb 2009

Running Xp sp2 and used msconfig to delete realplayer videos that wouldnt delete normally, by doing selective startup.
Switched back to normal startup. On restart the taskbar on the bottom is white coloured, I have no audio, no help and support, no sys information, usb ports are dead and no device manager!HELP!

Recheck MSCONFIG that you have put things back as the was

MSCONFIG does not Delete things, Unless you edit a File

Done that twice, still no joy
Rebooted about 6 times as well.

Edited nothing, wouldnt know how to.

Would a system restore work.

MSCONFIG does not Delete things, Unless you edit a File.

In my msconfig under General Tab, all are ticked other than top two

Also have you removed any ticks under Startup Tab?

Ok buteman i have No sys restore, thats gone as well. Woodchip normal startup is ticked, thats what was ticked before I sitched it to allow me to delete the files
Ordinarily I could just right click on the files to delete, but that didnt work so I switched to selective startup to make sure real player wasnt running. Obviously NOT a smart move!

  heepster 21:48 07 Feb 2009

Still all ticked in startup

On selective startup in MSCONFIG I regularly untick everything except the antivirus. Anything windows wants will come back and I do not want anything else to start. I think you have too much ticked.
