    hi,
    i wanted to replace a file with a patched one inside windows folder.
    i followed instructions i found on other sites but nothing works:
    i disabled UAC (user account control), disabled all other user accounts except administrator account, re-started and logged on using safe mode to administor account.
    then i tried to replace the file but still i got the message that says that "i need permeation to do that action"
    does someone knows how can i manage windows as i want to?
    ( i use vista 64bit ultimate )

    thanx

    This "Patch" is it from Microsoft?
    If NOT who?
    And what is it patching?

    this patch is not from windows, it's a patched tcpip.sys file ( the original file can be found in c:\windows\system32\drivers )
    the purpose of the patched file is to increase tcp connections so that i can get good download speed using P2P software ( such as utorrent )
    i'm not sure that i can post a link to the file i'm talking about ( because of the rules )

    This is a Microsoft system file and ONLY "TrustedInstaller" can change this file. This is part of the UAC so that third party's can NOT muck up a system.
