wpdnse folder?

On Microsoft » Microsoft XP

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

      Looks like Windows Media Player 11 is the culprit.

      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!!!

    • 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.
