    Due to changing some system icons with Iconphile I seem to be in need of disabling the Windows file Protection permanently. Also found the appropriate program here http://www.xp-erience.org/download.php?op=getit&lid=203

    But is it safe to do this or will it indeed affect the stability of my system? Don't wanna risk anything e.g. trojans or viruses being able to change system files when wfp is turned off.

    Thx for any advice

    Somebody has to know something ;)

    I did it and I've experienced no problems. The way I did it was by editing the sfc_os.dll file.
