Windows File Protection

Hello guys!

I need your help.

After last update of McAfee Total Protection now each start of the computer seems start the sfc /scannow command Windows File Protection.

I tried disable Windows File Protection at Registry Guide for Windows but the problem is persistent.

The o.s. is windows xp sp3.

Any help?

Thank you.

Re: Windows File Protection

There is a known issue with WFP and XP and they are working on a fix, but the problems only went as far as lots of Event Viewer entries and an occasional popup, no system file checks were started.  Are you saying that the system started doing an sfc /scannow file check on its own?  If so I will relay that back to my contacts.
