The ability to turn off Windows File Protection as been removed in SP2 (I guess that's why you are asking the question here). There is a registry tweak to get around this. It's explained in great detail here: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Tweaking-XP-Windows-File-Protection-SP2.html
