Finally managed to get this running, taken a few installs and strangely enough I used the same files and .reg file!
When FBWF is enabled, the pc on reboot tells me that windows did not start correctly and gives me the recovery options menu. I select start windows normally and all is okay but it does this every reboot when FBWF is enabled. I have disabled this menu but would kinda like to know if you get the samething.
When i started using my shutdownscript i never got that messages again.
It writes down the open files so windows gets stopped in a clear state.
Thanks Nomam I will give your script a go, was actually just about to try it.
You can find my improved Version of the Script here:
It includes logging and backup of files that could not be commited
Could someone tell me if you exclude a folder from FBWF, does that automatically include the sub folders?
Or do you have to specifically exclude every folder?

Many thanks for the script nomam. Will hopefully get a chance to try it soon.
I hope you credited me in your post on iphpbb3 ;)
Thanks to craptree's instructions I have got fbwf working fine on a test system.
The "windows did not start correctly" error mentioned above can be fixed by making the bootstat.dat write through (fbwfmgr /addexclusion c: \windows\bootstat.dat)
Fbwf seems to work only when SP3 is present.
Anyone has Fbwf files:
Downloading the entire xpe on dailup is really taking resource...
Does fbwf support booting from read only media?
Tried your method but booting display a error message
"unable to mount boot volume"
Technical information - 0 x 00000ED
and the xp just restart and loop back again and restart.
