Web Folders, or WebDAV, is a file transfer protocol that supports secure file transfer over intranets and the Internet. With Web Folders, you can upload, download, and manage files on a remote computer across an intranet and the Internet. Web Folders is similar to File Transfer Protocol (FTP); however, Web Folders provides a more secure environment for transferring files over the Web.

I don't have a cannon camera and I never did. Could it be a keylogger using a rootkit? Also, these programs don't have an uninstall option.

Is your computer a prebuilt (like Dell, HP, Compaq?) Many prefabs come with lots of software preinstalled.

Have you ever gotten a disc with developed photographs from a digital camera? They can come with software to view the pictures you've taken. Maybe the canon stuff got on your computer that way. Or if you've installed any kind of 3rd party picture software in the past (you don't have to own the camera to use it), they could be leftover from something like that.

Could it have come with your printer or scanner?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
