MSCONFIG (System Configuration Utility) is a core process of Windows, and relatively hard to "lose".
People sometimes think they've lost it, because they are making repetative mistakes when typing MSCONFIG.
To access your System Configuration Utility...
Start - Run - (type)msconfig - Enter
If your System Configuration Utility is actually "gone", you can get a copy of the file from any XP installatin CD.
The MSCONFIG.EXE belongs in C:\Windows\System\ on Windows XP
The MSCONFIG.EXE belongs in C:\Windows\System32\ on Windows 2000
Other locations that typically have a fresh copy of msconfig.exe are as follows:
msconfig.exe --- C:\Windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$
msconfig.exe --- C:\Windows\Service PackFiles\i386
msconfig.exe --- C:\Windows\system32\dllcache
msconfig.exe --- C:\Windows\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries
msconfig.exe - 3SE4DAE9.pf --- C:\Windows\Prefetch
You can copy/paste from any of those locations, or from a Windows Installation CD.
A more conventional way to determine if msconfig.exe is "gone" would be to run Windows Protected File System File Checker
Start - Run - (type)sfc /scannow <-- notice the required space before the "/"
