    I have just insatlled the NTFS patchxp.zip and it works great, thanks. However is there anyway to stop windows from asking me to replace the file with the old one, using the xp cd. Its a tad annoying.

    any and all help will be appricated ta

    when i was experiencing the same style problem with windows 98, i would search the registry for the filename. there was a dword value under a verify files section... unfortunatly i dont remember the names of the hives, and i dont run 98 at homeso i cant check for you. sorry. but, once the reference is deleted (back up registry first, as always), reboot, and see if it is gone. if so, there you go. hope this helps.

    ok

    when the file protection error appears click cancel
    you do NOT want to replace the file with the original

    next you will be asked
    do you want to keep this unrecognised file
    click yes

    that should be last you see of it

    .................

    if the patch doesnt work you will need to delete the bak file it created
    in
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\uxtheme.bak
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\uxtheme.bak (hidden folder )

    before trying again

    TwoZigzagColt45 explained it to you. When xp wants to replace the hacked file click cancel. That's it.

    Well clicking cancel, and then saying yes to the updated file thing has no effect. It just keeps popping up all the time,esp when using my 3d modelling software (3ds max). A restart normally get rid of it, other wise its constant. So thats "not JUST IT" . Hmm looks like ki might have to replace it with the original.oh well

    did you try deleting the .bak file
    in
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\uxtheme.bak
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\uxtheme.bak (hidden folder )

    I know from experience
    if you get wrong first time
    it wont work again untill you have deleted the uxtheme.bak file
