Windows Security Center hack
« on: September 21, 2012, 10:12:31 PM »
You missed one file -- wscntfy.dll

It doesn't matter much unless one is using an alternative shell. I use Emerge Desktop in my everyday non-admin user account, and it was driving me crazy with:

EmergeTray.exe - Unable to Locate Component

This application has failed to start because WSCAPI.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.

...every time I logged in. No problem in Windows profiles using Explorer shell; only Emerge kept presenting me with this horrible ghost of the WSC.

So, I logged into my mean-security-hackin' account, took ownership of the most likely suspect, and renamed it. Logged back in as my normal self and had instant relief. Ahhhh.....

Other than that, it's a lovely hack. :)
