Hi all

I have a repeating issue on my server farm where wfshell.exe in certain
user sessions take up 50% CPU load. If two sessions are affected by
this, the server comes to a virtual halt and I have to kill the two
tasks. What I observed so far:

1. Not all users are affected, usually the same 3 or 4 users show the

2. Not all servers a affected, some show the effect more often

3. Killing wfshell.exe does not harm the user session, users can
continue to work (just faster, of course)

Anyone seen this? What can be done to prevent it?

Environment: 2 server farm, W2K SP2, Metaframe XP FR1, 1 GHz Dual PIIIs
with 512 MB RAM (PowerEdge 2550).=20
