I was playing around in the C:\Windows\System32\oobe folder and ran the exe files located there. Now everytime i boot i get setup is preparing your computer for first use. is there anyway to prevent this?
yes well i realized it was stupid after i did it, its been a while since it started to now idk what i'll loose in system restore i guess i could give it a try. As for msconfig already did that its not a this windows will let you disable.
When you were in Msconfig,did you look under the "Boot" tab? You may find an added entry there which is obviuosly wrong??
Otherwise, open the Control Panel (icon view) System - Advanced System - "Advanced" tab. Look under "Start up and Recovery" settings and see if you have a wrong default sitting there.
