Windows File Protection Error Message

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by Coolestmaster, Nov 21, 2002.

  1. Everytime I restart I get the $%%^ File Protection Message wanting me to insert the CD. I hit cancel, it warns me it might not work and then all is well. Until I reboot and get the same thing.

    I'm not sure what happened. I've been running with the styleXP uxtheme.dll for the last year with no problem. The only thing I can think is that I recently installed some Windows security updates that were offered.

    I've done a complete search (including hidden files) and can find no other uxtheme.* anywhere on the disk. I don't understand what Windows is comparing the hacked file to.

    Is there some way to disable this without disabling the entire File Protection?

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    firstly, do you have the service pack installed? i not, you could install that, and then use PatchXP from this site to apply your visual styles. other than that the only solution that i can think of is to uninstall stylexp's patch then try reinstalling it.
