    MSConfig & Selective Startup


    So msconfig is driving me nuts as whenever i just click normal or diagonstic boot it reverts to selective startup. I had this issue in Windows 7 and i fixed it somehow. Any help?

    it didn't work man, at least not for very long time. as soon as I checked the "normal" icon and rebooted my notebook, the windows set automatically the previous config once again. what a hell!

    Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Like you must play around with it a little to get it working again. That's what i did. I went nuts trying to fix it.

    doesn`t make any sense hehe

    what is the point of running it in the safe mode only to get it back to its initial status? I don't get it

    With playing around you must try different methods and eventually it will work.

    You are not solving anything. This is a normal behaviour. All my PC's are running in selective mode and the reason for that is if you disable any service(s), startup item(s) then it becomes Selective.

    From msconfig. Click on the "Services" tab and disable an item then it will switch to Selective Startup.
