1.Set (or create) the SFCDisable to REG_DWORD 'ffffff9d'. (It should be currently set to '0')
Windows will not clean up the files, so if you want to trash them, you can, but leave the folder.
Check your event log and see that Windows has truly disabled it.
Other reports on the 'net indicate that a value of '1' will disable WFP, but this seems to reset after another reboot.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
