    I have discovered a file in my "c" drive I'm not familiar with. It is a text file with note pad. In the file the phrase "error report- impersonate user" appears often and it seems that action has been denied. I'm not really sure. Can someone elaborate? The file is "userenv" and I'm running XP SP2 with .NET framework SP1 at 433 megs. This file is in the debug folder. What is it? :confused:

    Hi, Well here is some stuff I found, maybe you can get something from it, it does look legit though if that is what was bugging you. Basically, in ordinary terms, for ordinary users of XP, it would have to do with the User Shell and help with loading user profiles...as much as I can tell.
    Some other things too, depends on what else you do with the computer, running a server, etc...multiple user profiles, too...

    I think you can examine an error file and find out what the problem, if any might be...do you get any errors at any time? Did you upgrade from Windows 2000 Pro?

    Thanks Byteman,
    It did clear up some things. I was having trouble with my ISP recently due to upgrades on their end so maybe that was what created the error. I guess you can figure out what I'm thinking by my user name.

    Hope you clear it all up.
