Enable or Disable Windows File Protection.

Go to START–>RUN and type REGEDIT. This will open the registry editor. Find the following registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Look for the key “SFCDisable” and double click on it.

Set the value to one of the following:

  • 1 - disabled, prompt at boot to re-enable

  • 2 - disabled at next boot only, no prompt to re-enable

  • 4 - enabled, with popups disabled

  • ffffff9d - for completely disabled

  • 0 - Enabled
