What is "WebFldrs XP"
Trying to sort out a few logon issues, I've come across this in the event log on an XP SP3 machine every time a pupil logs on:
Event ID: 11728
Product: WebFldrs XP -- Configuration completed successfully.
This doesn't happen on any builds without SP3.
I found something on this website:
Security Forums :: View topic - WebFldrs
....and it sounds like it's something we don't need, so I followed the instructions to remove it.
Web Folders, or WebDAV, is a file transfer protocol that supports secure file transfer over intranets and the Internet. With Web Folders, you can upload, download, and manage files on a remote computer across an intranet and the Internet. Web Folders is similar to File Transfer Protocol (FTP); however, Web Folders provides a more secure environment for transferring files over the Web
However, when a user logs on I now get the event log entry:
Product: WebFldrs XP -- Error 1304. Error writing to file: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Folders\MSOWS409.DLL. Verify that you have access to that directory.
I have been looking into MS KB article 238441 to eliminate the "applying personalised settings"
Remove Personalized Settings for New Users After Installing Internet Explorer 5
which does seem to fix it on the one machine I've tried.

Just thought I'd update this. It is also on an XP SP2 machine, fully patched.
