Updated SFCList: Protected System File Listing Tool

SFCList is the console tool to list protected system files on Windows platform. Windows has introduced SFC technology (System File Checker) to protect core system files from being accidently or intentionally modified by third party programs. Whenever any such protected file is modified, SFC comes into action and replaces it with original system file.

SFCList tool can be used to list all such  protected files as well as check if the given file is protected by SFC mechanism.

The newer version displays MD5 checksum for each of protected system files. It also checks if listed file is really present on the system. Thanks to Mark for suggesting this feature.

For more information and download refer to main page of SFCList.
