wpdnse folder?

Guest

I have a temp folder called " wpdnse". It is listed in %temp%. When I try to
delete the folder, it is recreated upon starting or restarting my computer.
Recently I installed the new Windows Media Player 11 and the Final version of
Windows Defender 1.1.1593. One of these installs could have created this
folder. Does anyone know what this folder is and why it can't be permanately
deleted? Thanks

I have a temp folder called " wpdnse". It is listed in %temp%.

Looks like Windows Media Player 11 is the culprit.
When I try
to delete the folder, it is recreated upon starting or restarting my
computer.

WPDShServiceObj.dll probably recreates the folder.

WPDNSE stands for Windows Portable Device Namespace extension. The only
thing that I can think of is that Windows uses this folder to temp share
information when user elects to share information from a portable device.
You can add files to it, but they are deleted as soon as the user logs off.

Thanks for your brilliant post. WPDNSE is definitely related to Windows
Media Player 11. I just uninstalled WMP 11 and WMP 11 runtime libraries. And
WPDNSE folder is GONE!.

Hey all. Yea, a few days after removing WPDShServiceObj.dll, I am no longer
having a problem with the elusive, empty, self-generating WPDNSE folder.
Hoorraaayy!!!

Name: WPDShServiceObj
Filename: WPDShServiceObj.dll
Command: C:\WINDOWS\system32\WPDShServiceObj.dll
Description: Windows Portable Device Shell Service Object
File Location: %System%
Startup Type: This startup entry is started automatically via the following
Windows Registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\

Under that key will be a value containing the listed CLSID which can be
found under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\ and contains the filename that is to be
loaded.

I recently downloaded and installed WMP 10 and I think that it is a POS.
WMP9 was fine. WMP11 looks like an ever bigger POS!!!!

See if Windows Portable Device Shell Service is listed in Services and
Disable it.

Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click Windows Portable Device Shell Service |
Set Startup type to Disabled.

Thanks Wesley for your help. I don't have a Windows Portable Shell Service
listed to disable. Since it is created by Microsoft it might be best to leave
it alone and not try to delete this folder that comes back anyway. This is a
new topic so i'll wait to see where the wind blows. Besides WMP 11 is not my
default player.
