    msconfig vs defender startups

    Is msconfig redundant? I see Microsoft's userinit logon and iexplore in the
    Defender startup when I go to Control Panel/Change startup items. They are
    both 'permitted' even though the buttons (enable/disable/remove) are all
    greyed out (after clicking show for all). But I don't see these in msconfig
    startup.

    Hi,

    Sort of, yes. It just covers certain startup areas, generally those that are
    system wide, but not all of them, particularly those that are specific to
    one user account.

    Hi RJ,

    You can read more on these two in this tutorial. It should help you see the differences and similarities between the two.
