    Just wanted to find out if anyone has solved this problem before I Max-Blast
    my HD and re-install.....

    Since installing RC-1, I am getting a few annoying message boxes popping up
    on a consistent basis. The message box appears at 2 different times:

    Message = "This folder is shared with other people - Deleting the folder
    will" (I forget what it says deleting the folder will do), but I am not
    trying to delete anything whenever the message box appears


    1. The first one appears every time I close Windows Mail and refers to a
    folder, "ppcrlui_xxxx", located in
    c:\users\currentusername\AppData\Local\Temp - The xxxx is different
    (random?) numbers.


    This folder is created by the system and is *not* shared, and I am not
    trying to delete it when the message box appears, I am just trying to exit
    from Windows mail. If I leave the folder alone, another one is created next
    time I open Windows Mail. And another. And another..........


    2. Whenever I start windows I get the same message box, this time referring
    to a folder : "WPDNSE", also located in
    c:\users\currentusername\AppData\Local\Temp

    This folder is not shared, either, and I am not trying to delete it.

    If I do delete these folders, they just reappear.

    I did a scan with Windows Defender in Vista, booted into XP and did complete
    scans with Windows Defender, Spybot, Ad Aware, and Norton Anti-Virus 2006 -
    Nada.

    Did a web search, and saw a few references tot WPDNSE, but not really the
    same situation as mine and no mention of Vista. No hits at all on a folder
    named "ppcrlui-xxxx"

    Anyone run into this

    I had this happen last night for the first time. I had just installed
    Perfect Disk 8 (beta) for Vista RC1 and thought it was related to the
    install. I deleted the folder and have not rebooted since then so I
    don't know if it will return...

    Just an update on this:

    I used XP to delete, re-create and format the HDD (for some reason, this
    seems to be different from choosing these options from within the Windows
    setup), Did another clean install, and EVERYTHING works perfectly now. In
    addition to the WPDNSE thing and the ppcrlui_xxxx thing being gone now, a UI
    graphics glitch with the taskbar disappeared as well.

    I am starting to think that a format (maybe even a zero-fill) should be a
    routine part of every installation, and that maybe a lot of problems you see
    posted here would not even be happening at all if the drive was formatted
    prior to install. Not sure whether this phenomenon is the fault of
    Microsoft for not having the setup program eliminate all traces of a prior
    OS or if maybe it is just a characteristic of HDDs.

    I get these as well. I think it has to do with Windows Mail(?) but I'm not
    sure. I haven't seen any operating issues yet that other than the annoying
    message now and then.

  5. ppcrlui.dll is the Passport Client UI Library

    WPDNSE is Windows Portable Devices Namespace Extension

    According to a post here:
    http://forums.wugnet.com/vista/Error-Windows-Vista-ftopict12014.html from a
    MSFT person, the later is a known bug to be fixed in Vista RTM. Perhaps the
    ppcrlui bug is caused by a similar situation. It would be a good idea to
    file both bugs to make sure someone looks at them.

    Hi,
    I figured this out but it takes a little work.
    If you go into windows explorer first you need to go the the
    menu bar on top where it says "organize" drop that down
    Click on folder and search options, then view, then hit the
    radio button that says "show hidden files and folders" and hit OK
    Then go the the folder
    C:\Users\account name\AppData\local\temp\WPDNSE
    The account name in the above path stands for all the user names
    that have limited account access, except the one you're signed in under.
    You have to go to this folder "WPDSNE" for each account name, they all have
    one.
    When you get to the above folder right click on it and choose properties and
    then click on the security tab and then edit and on the permissions deny
    control
    (check all deny boxes, if you check the top one all of them will check.) to
    all the limited user accounts. Don't do it for admin accounts or system
    account or the
    account you're signed in under at the time you edit this folder permission
    You then sign on to all the other accounts that are getting this popup
    and do the same but don't do it for the account you're signed under.
    You only deny permission to the accounts you're not signed in under.
    If you do this with each account you'll eventually cover them all.
    I only had two accounts so I only had to do it twice.
    It sounds hard but once you do the first folder you'll get the hang of it
    quickly.
    It workedfor me I hope it works for you...good luck
