    I tested it on XP SP2 with all updates and I can confirm it works :)

    This program cannot be used for the newest version (5.1.2600.2180) of sfc_os.dll for XP. Because the place to which a patch should be applied is different, WFP does not become invalid.
    I expect an early action of the author.

    A lifesaver, as I was going to kill either myself or someone close if Microsoft didn't stop harassing my poor modded comp about a changed DLL. Great little app - I recommened Windows File Protection Switcher 1.0 for Windows SP2 uninstalls especially.

    Nice utility. Also try WfpAdmin.
