The Windows ME System File Protection feature replaces the System File Checker that came with Windows 98. It is supposed to automatically replace a protected file with a clean copy extracted from the system cab files on your hard disk. In the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\sfp folder open sfplog.txt to see what actions System File Protection has taken. To see what files are protected navigate to \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\sfp and open sfpdb.sfp with notepad. Sorry about the bad news, I too found System File Check as a worthy tool. Jerry
