I'm getting a WFP warning every time I start my W2K machine and it tells me it can't find the right files on my CD.

I know I can disable WFP, but I'd like to try to find out which files it's attempting to restore. Is there any way to do that, so I can replace them manually?

I know there's a site around here somewhere that tells you what files in windows operate what...just let me dig it up

Hmm...couldn't find it. This is about the closest it comes: http://www.petri.co.il/what's_windows_file_protection.htm

Ay, that's too bad.

Personally, I disable WFP as soon as I install Win2K. It always seems to "protect" files that I want to legitimately modify, yet it never catches the files that do get screwed over, when the next big virus comes along...

Well, since I can't seem to figure out which files are making it itch, I've decided to disable it.

And for those who may want some info for this, I scooped the following from http://www.insideproject.com/showguide.cfm?guideid=22 ...

quote:
If you want to disable the Scheme completely, modify the value named "SFCDisable" equal to "0xffffff9d". If you want to enable WFP in the future, set this value equal to "0". If you would like to disable WFP, but still have the option to enable it upon each boot then set the value equal to "1". If you want to disable WFP only for the next time you boot, then set the value equal to "2". You can also enable WFP with pop-ups disabled. To do this, set the value equal to "4".

Depending on the error number, the list of files may be under the error code in the Event viewer under Applications

WFP gives an error number?

All it tells me is there are files that have been replaced and will you kindly stick in your W2K CD.
