So no, I wouldn't say TccTool and FWDN are essentially the same even though in some basic cases the operation's result can be the same.
I see. Thanks for clarifying!

Aw, crap. I'll need to find my Windows XP CD, then. Do you by any chance know whether it's possible to use FWDN from a virtual machine?
