php-cgi.exe - ProcMon showing Access Denied on folders it should't need to be accessing

Is this something I should be concerned about or normal behavior?  Below is a screen shot from Process Monitor on a Windows 2003 server running IIS and PHP.

PHP is running from a folder under c:\php\
Web Sites are on a separate drive.

Why would php-cgi.exe even be trying to access these non-relevant folders?

Set "log_errors = On" in your 'php.ini' and you can check your error logs on the server.  You can also use "error_log = filename" to send them to a specific file.  And you could correlate the web server access logs with the error logs for further detail.

It wouldn't unless some PHP page was telling it to.

Thanks, I was able to track it down to the specific application pool identity, but there are several Wordpress sites that run under that account.

Any method you can recommend to track down which specific PHP page the code is coming from?
