    ok well i was bored so i was looking through my running processes(sorry spelling) and i found WUDFHost.exe and i hadn't seen that in there before and so i did what i always do and i check it through Google and the site i cam across said that it was from Microsoft and for windows Vista... thats all good but um... i am using XP so i was wondering if this ,WUDFHost.exe, is something i should be worrying about cause i am doing scans of my system right now but i have a feeling nothing will come up so really i am just asking for reassurance, thanks in advance . oh and the site that i viewed this was http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/wudfhost.exe.html

    Maybe you plugged in a portable media player or you have just recently installed the drivers for one?

    Wudfhost.exe is a Windows (Vista AND XP) driver file that is used for interfacing with portable media players such as Creative Zen and others. If you delete it or stop it running then you won't be able to dock your media player.

    It's a good idea to check out any file or process you're not sure about. I wish more people had that attitude. Glad to help. Enjoy your system.
