sfc is a system control file and service

ties to the windows file protection database, indexing service and ntfs hooks

to replace non compliant and potentially damaging mismatched dll and support files in the windows 2000/xp and athena systems and will be replaced/integrated with the winfs files system in blackcomb and later releases.

it can be disabled for what its worth but can and does cause the following side effects

1:) nulls any protection possible against forcible insertion of a mismatched or altered file into your system, either by setup installer or by forced entry(hack) from external source

2:) breaks and errors with the indexing service and causes minor errors in catalogue files associated with windows components and hotfix installers intermittently

3:) causes your wife to make you sleep on the couch because you f***ed up your install and she had plans to do some cruising at porn sites/amazon to do shopping etc...this is the one that seems to cause the most trouble for people. Use all caution :)
