I was wondering does anyone know if there is a GodMode for Windows XP? I read an article that the new "Windows 7" has a GodMode. It said it has GodMode functionality, all you need to do is create a new folder and then name it to the following: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. Unfortunately I only have Windows XP or I would love to see if that really works. So any help if anyone knows if Windows XP has a similar thing.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

While its not the same as what the original answer said, true “God mode” is possible in XP.  Its not as easy as clicking a few items and naming a folder, but it does grant you SYSTEM account access.  I’m not sure if its ever been patched, however.
