Windows File Protection

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi All,

In Windows 2000, there is a new mechanism called Windows File
Protection. For that building
and replacing any microsoft supplied driver file is impossible, unless
we turn off this mechanism.

This was stated in the ifskit install.htm.


How do you turn off this mechanism ?

Any help is appreciated

thanx
