Since lots of replies suddenly occured, people may have missed the question: What have I lost by disabling WebClient?

Finally solved the damn password thingy. All i have to do was to run the "Network Setup Wizard" only on each PC & set them all to access internet thru a hub & presto! No more password, but bad thing is it unshared all the folders in the process. Sori Greg I still dun know what WebClient is for too.

# Real World Description: the WebClient service provides WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) integration in the Explorer shell. It makes it possible to use "web folders" and to browse the file systems of web servers (not unlike FTP, but better -- adds secure password authentication and file locking) within an Explorer window. WebDAV is an extension of the HTTP/1.1 protocol.
# It is not needed.
# You can also use Internet Explorer 5 and above for this functionality (File > Open > enter URL and check the "Open as Web Folder" checkbox), as well as a host of other downloadable tools that implement WebDAV.

Thanks Serialdave, at least for me, disabling that service completely eliminated the huge pause while exploring shared folders.
