Our WBEM Framework log is filling up with the following error message:

Shell Name Explorer.exe in Registry not found in process list.      06/03/2006 08:45:09.282      thread:6256      [d:\srv03rtm\admin\wmi\wbem\providers\win32provider\common\implogonuser.cpp.156]

Any ideas as to what is causing this and what I should do about it?

Those are pretty normal messages and it shouldn't really be "filling up" as that log gets recycled every couple of days.  The reason the messages exist is that there are still two standards of authentication in use, NTLM and Kerberos.  That message is just signifying that the first one that was tried by your system (NTLM) failed because the resource it was trying to use wanted Kerberos.  (Or the other way around, depending on the resource needed).

If the log gets to be more than about 50k then you should look into why it's not recycling, but otherwise don't worry about it.
