How to disable Windows File Protection in Windows 2000 Server with SP3 or later?

Q: How to disable Windows File Protection in Windows 2000 Server with SP3 or later?

I want to disable the WFP in Windows 2000 Server with SP3 or later. I have tried to follow the instruction in http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/790. However,
I cannot copy sfc1.dll to overwrite sfc.dll since sfc.dll is also protected by WFP.

Thank you for any help.

Preferred Solution: How to disable Windows File Protection in Windows 2000 Server with SP3 or later?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a client who uses this very very bad (in my opinion) industry-specific software. It runs on a Windows 2000 Server in Terminal Services. The problem is that whenever a user opens this program, there is a session file created by it (unrelated to the operating system's login). This isn't a problem, as it's deleted when they log off... except for when this nasty program stops responding or closes without warning! Then there's a user file left over. If you try to delete it, it says that the file is locked or in use... access denied. If we restart the server (after painfully having everyone log off), I can delete the file fine... So, my quesion is: (1) is there a way of un-locking a file without restarting when this happens? And (2) is there a way to disable file locking in Windows 2000 Server?

I've found a bit of information about "opportunistic file locking", but it doesn't seem to have helped this specific problem. I figure if we can find some way to disable file locking, at least I could run a batch program every so often to delete out-dated log-ins before they run out of licenses and need to reboot.

Any help / info / etc is appreciated!

Hello 'outthere' , I need to disbale windows file protection on a XP pro sp2 based machine . I have seen fixes with HEX editors and a reg hack - but is there an easier way to do this - and reverse it if required .


A:disable windows file protection xp pro sp2

howdy richardhart..

The easiest way would be as shown below..

You can by something like a utility program to do the same thing but most as I have seen cost money.. How long do you want to shut WFP off for? Forever or like a couple days
Open your registry and find the key below.

Change the value of "SFCDisable" to equal "ffffff9d" to disable WFS or "0" to enable it. The other valid hexadecimal values are:

1 - disabled, prompt at boot to re-enable
2 - disabled at next boot only, no prompt to re-enable
3 - enabled, with popups disabled
ffffff9d - for completely disabled

Restart Windows for the change to take effect.

How does one accomplish this in Windows 10? As well as Registry Virtualization.

This is from a link that supposedly works on XP and 7, but "Windows NT" does not appear to exist in that key on Windows 10.

You may disable WFP by setting the value SFCDisable (REG_DWORD) in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon. By default, SFCDisable is set to 0, which means WFP is active. Setting SFCDisable to 1 will disable WFP. Setting SFCDisable to 2 will disable WFP for the next system restart only (without a prompt to re-enable).
Important: You must have a kernel debugger attached to the system via null modem cable (for example:I386kd.exe or Windbg.exe) to use SFCDisable = 1 or SFCDisable = 2.
After WFP is disabled using the SFCDisable = 1 setting, the following message will appear after logon:
Warning! Windows File Protection is not active on this system. Would you like to enable Windows File Protection now? This will enable Windows File Protection until the next system restart. .
Clicking Yes will reactivate WFP until the next system restart. This message will appear at every successful logon until SFCDisable is set to 0.

Hi there

I spent a fair bit of time finding out how to disable Windows File Protection with XP SP3 so I thought I'd post it here in case anyone else has the same problems.

1. Download the SP3 redistributable package from Microsoft here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

2. Copy the contents of an XP install disk onto a folder on your hard drive (C:\XPCD as recommended by MSFN) http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/1/

3. Download and install nLite http://www.nliteos.com/ you'll need Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 or higher for nLite to work http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...0b-f857-4a14-83f5-25634c3bf043&displaylang=en

4. Run nLite, point it to your install folder (e.g. C:\XPCD), then click Next until you reach the Task Selection screen. For the WFP tweak you only need to select Service Pack, and Options, but if you want to play around with all the bells and whistles please do! (Link to MSFN, above gives more help than you could want!)

5. Click Next and select the SP3 file.

6. Click Next, select the Patches tab and disable SFC/WPF at the bottom of the screen.

7. Click Next and let nLite do its thang!
You now have an SP3 install folder that will have SFC/WPF disabled by default.

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :

Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:


As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

I searched this forum and found someone that was having a similar problem to me. His threads are here:



However I have a different problem. I have no problem putting in my Win XP SP2 CD and the install continues without a problem. The problem however pops back up when I try to remotely install patches using a program called Update Expert. The patches will fail because the computers don't have the service pack 2 CD.

Basically my question is why does this Windows File Protection come up during the install and what can I do to get rid of it? I'm using my companies VLKs to install and deploy to my work computers. Does it have something to do with installing Office 2000 after Service Pack 2?

Any help getting over this hurdle would be great as we would like to move to automated remote installs of Office rather then doing them by hand or having them on ghost images.

Will someone please explain to me briefly what the difference is between all of these? Why would one want one over the other?

I guess that Windows 2000 is sort of like NT Workstation. If not, please tell me.

And what is the difference between Windows 2000 Server and 2000 Advanced Server?

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Anvanced Server--the difference?


Win2K Professional is, indeed, just NT Workstation 5.0

The real difference between Win2K Server and Win2K Advanced Server is scalability. To quote a CNET article: "Three versions of the operating system will be available next week (it's an old article): Windows 2000 Professional, aimed at PCs and workstations; Windows 2000 Server, for file-and-print servers; and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, supporting clustering, which is a way of making several systems act as a single, more powerful computer.

To quote the FAQ from www.winmag.com:
Windows 2000 Professional is the workstation edition of Windows 2000. This is basically Windows NT Workstation 5.0, although Win2K Professional of course includes all of the new technologies for Win2K.

Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server is the server edition of Windows 2000, which is designed to serve small- to mid-sized businesses and workgroups. Server supports up to 4GB of physical RAM and up to 4 processors per computer. Advanced Server supports up to 8GB of RAM and 8 processors per computer.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server is designed for large businesses and computer clusters. Datacenter supports up to 32 processors per computer and up to 64GB of RAM, as well as built-in clustering and load-balancing features.

Is that what you wanted?

Dear All,
I have a problem where i am having 2 application server clustered and both using a common file folder (residing on one app server and access by other through mapping network drive). This common shared folder is storing some files used in application. Now my problem is that because of sharing folder this way, my application starts running slowly and performance is hampered. It application actually stop running as file is not getting opened. If i remove the clustering and just work with one app server (ofcourse file folder residing on the same server) it works fine. Can somebody tell me what can be the problem if i access the files through mapped network drive. I am using windows server 2K with 2 GB RAM.

Appreciate the help on this.

Currently we are on an NT network with a few 2000 servers tossed in. Today I learned that the plan is to migrate everything to Linux. Lets assume that this only applies to the servers and that the users will still operate with 98/nt/2000/xp. What are your thoughts on this?

I put this in this forum for a reason. Because I'd rather get the advice from 2000 and 2003 experts who know what Linux cannot replace than to hear the Linux fanboys and anti-Microsoft activists praise it to the high heavens.

Hi All

Am I right in thinking that they are both pretty similar except that server has support for multiple processors and extra network related tools and facilities. The reason I ask is that if a piece of software works on Windows 2000 server, is it extremely likely that it will work on Windows 2000 professional too? As a bit of background information: I work for a small company which supplies temperature monitoring equipment which needs to be networked. I've been told that it has been tested on Windows 2000 server but not on Window 2000 professional.


A:Windows 2000 professional and Windows 2000 server: same?

Yes, the OS are pretty much the same. The server edition supports more than 10 simultaneous connections (for file and print sharing) and supports network stuff as you said. But those differences could potentially break an application depending on what it does and how it interacts with the OS.

Hello, I'm new to the forum and have been struggling with what I hope is a simple networking issue for quite some time. I'm finally coming to the experts for some backup! I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to networking as well so please bare with me. Here is the issue:

We have a small network of computers running various OS, XP, Windows 2000, Windows 7 which all connect to a server running Windows Server 2000. All computers connect to the server flawlessly will full permissions to copy edit print save, etc. EXCEPT for the desktops running Windows 7.

The issue we experience with Windows 7 are two-fold when it comes down to it:

1. We can't open Office documents (we all run Office 2010) unless we open them with Open Office.

2. Can't copy any file from the server to our desktop (we can open pdfs and images and save them to our desktop however!)

I've poured through the forum and online for solutions and have tried quite a few things: taking ownership of the folders/files, making sure full permissions have been granted on the server for my specific adminsitrator user account, etc. all with the same result.

It's a weird thing to me. I can see the files on the server, the server can see my files. All other paths talk fine to each other it's only between the Windows 7 and the Windows Server 2000. Sorry for the long post, ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Can't connect Windows 7 Pro to Windows 2000 server Domain.

I know you have add the computer name and user name on the server, but you did not join the computer to the domain. Therefore if you try to access the share on the server, actually it accesses with an account of the server system. If you log on with Administrator in Windows 7, you need to set the password the same as the Administrator's password of the Windows 2000 system.
Also you need to change the NTLM authentication level in Windows 7.
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Please change the NTLM authentication level to ?Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated?. Please refer the following article.Arthur Xie - MSFT

When the user on the 98 machine tries to log in it just says invalid or unknown domain or it might even be password, im not sure at the minute, more likely to be domain as we set up the user accounts ourselfs.

The teacher asked us to try the ping command, to try to connect to each other.
My friend on the 98 machine could ping himself and my machine,
i could pinghost (my machine) but when i tried to ping the 98 machine it said request timed out.
This seemed odd as he could ping my machine but i could not ping his, the only thing i can think of about that is outbound connections have been blocked, but we have been told security is disabled as default on Win2000 servers.

Sorry about the large text file, it wont let me add RTF files on here, i tried to bold the part we are stuck on but it just changed the whole text of everything.
We are stuck on from :
7. Configure a Windows 98 Client
(its near the bottom of the file)

Any help would be appreciated.

I am setting up a network using a server with Windows Small Business Server 2003. I will be setting up a VPN using a cable/broadband internet connection. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend the best antivirus to run on the server and do I need to install an antivirus on each machine or just on the server? Also looking for recommendations on a dsl router/firewall/vpn that is dependable and not outragously priced. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
