Windows Me offers file protection

Installing a new version of Windows sometimes overwrites shared files of other application software, and these file version mismatches often lead to an unstable application (or even an overall system crash). Microsoft has corrected this problem in Windows Me. The System File Protection (SFP) feature prevents a user from installing software that might make the operating system unstable. When software either overwrites newer files with older files or overwrites files with modified versions and renames them, Windows Me now monitors these types of installations. If a program attempts to load older or alternate versions of an existing file, Windows Me will first store the original file, then check to see if the new/modified file can safely replace the original. If so, Windows Me allows the installation. Otherwise, the original file is restored.
