Windows startup configuration: msconfig

A while back, I remembered running across a utility, part of the stock Windows install, that let you configure all the different ways things can run at startup/login time. You used to do this by tiptoing through the registry, so things were scattered in several places, and it was easy to miss something. For the life of me, I couldn't remember what the hell that was, and searching Microsoft's own site was of course no help. (Chaff obscuring the wheat.)

The tool is called msconfig, and it lives in C:\WINDOWS\pchealth\helpctr\binaries
