If you want to open a document library with “Open with Windows Explorer” you use the WebDAV protocol to list the folder contents on a SharePoint. This can be very helpful if you need to copy a lot of files from or to your computer. Opening the Explorer View on a Windows 7 computer you get an logon window to enter your credentials. It works, is little annoying though. To fix this you need to change a setting in your registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\WebClient\Parameters] AuthForwardServerList

Adding the URL of your SharePoint server will automatically forward your credentials the next time (after reboot) you open the Explorer View.WebDavAuthForward
