    I keep getting this message popup after I installed a hacked uxtheme.dll file on my SP1 installation about the file being missing and the CD needed.

    Now i completely understand why this is happening but is there a way to say add the file to an ignore list. I've head you can completely disable Windows File Protection but i don't know if I want that (I like the security).

    Any suggestions are welcome! ;)

    The ignore list you are looking for is the file "filelist.xml" in System 32. You can add things there to exclude them from system file protection and system restore. Never touched it myself.
    If you want to replace uxtheme.dll it should not be necessary to edit this file. The easiest way to do it is to use andyp's PatchXp, see the thread pinned to the Themes forum. How did you do it? Has your hacked dll the right version number [6.00.2800.1106 (xpsp1.020828-1920)]? Did you also replace or rename the backup copy in Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 or if slipstreamed system32\dllcache?
