System Files Lister is a small utility that enumerates files protected by System File Checker mechanism used with the Windows File Protection (WFP) feature. This feature does allow users to protect the core system files from being accidentally or intentionally modified by third party programs.

If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it recovers the correct version of it from the cache folder (%Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache) or the Windows installation source files and then replaces the incorrect file.

System Files Lister tool helps to enumerate all those protected files.

System Files Lister When you start System Files Lister, it will enumerate all existing system protected files. The search option provides the ability to locate a file on the list.
Additionally, the tool allows you to verify a file by entering the full path to it in the file system.
