Help and Support breaks msconfig for XP Home

Recommended Posts


This seems to be specifically a XP Home edition problem.

When I remove Help and Support, I get this error message from msconfig:

An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes.

Of course I am logged in as admin.

Installing an HP printer caused this similar issue for others (I Googled it) because of a registry change. It wasn't the fault of the printer driver but a bug in msconfig that popped up because of it. A small change to the registry fixed it.

I am hoping that a registry addition or change can solve my problem as well. Oh, I have no HP printer btw so the HP specific fix won't work for me.

When I tick the Help and Support check box in nLite, how can I find out what it removes or changes in the registry?

Thank you
