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.

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

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

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
