    Disabling Microsoft's File Protection

    Here's the deal:
    I decided to make one of those "slipstreamed" windows XP discs that has sp1a integrated into it and when I burned it a couple of the files were corrupted but they installed anyway.

    cleanmgr.exe (Disk Cleanup)
    msiexec.exe (Windows Installer)

    These two files were messed up, there may be more that I haven't found too. When I replace these files with working ones Windows bugs me about applications altering windows files, and keeps bugging me until I pop in the windows CD and it replaces them with the damaged files again. Does anyone know how to disable this feature so Windows will just accept the new files?

    Have you tried the original disk to copy the files?

    That fix should work, thanks a lot. I have tried the original disk, but it asks for the Windows XP SP1A disk.
