Start >> Run >> Regedit >> Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\MSCONFIG.EXE


On the right pane, Check if the path is correct:

D:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe

If it doesn't work, see this:

I can't help you remove the genuine advantage tool.

Do you have a Windows XP CD?

Hello.
Put your XP CD in, then go to Start > Run, type in cmd and press enter.

In the command prompt, type this in exactly as seen otherwise this won't work:
expand X:\i386\msconfig.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe

Note: Replace X with your CD drive letter.


@RealBelahzur - [Prework] - Please PM me if I fail to respond within 24hrs.
