msconfig.exe will not close

    Whenever I make a change to the "msconfig.exe" (for instance to the startup
    list) when I click apply it prevents me from closing the "msconfig.exe"
    program and also saving the change I have just made.

    I have no idea why it is doing this, can anyone help?

    ps i'm running Kaspersky 5.0.149 so i'd be suprised if its a virus, but any
    ideas at all would be helpful.

    If your OS is XP, how are you handling the System Information message
    you get after clicking the 'ok' button on MSConfig? There are two
    choices: Restart or Not (something like that.) Choose the button on the
    right to avoid restart so you can continue whatever you were doing. Next
    time you boot, your changes will be made by Windows at that time. HTH to
    solve the closing problem. If not, next time don't click Apply.
