Hi, my shared folder has disappeared from windows explorer. I have XP Home
with guest, 1 other user and 1 administrator accounts. Noticed a few days
ago that I cannot save changes to a file in the shared folder while in a
user (limited account) or guest accounts.
Thanks for any advice
Dale

Hi Wesley, thx for helping me with this.

While checking through I realised I haven't lost the shared folders folder
after all, it's just been renamed to Documents. I've had a bit of a tinker
in the registry but to no avail and of course I don't really know what I'm
doing in there any way so further advise would be appreciated.

Dale

Hi Dale,

The desktop.ini file for Shared Documents is either screwed up or missing.

Detailed, illustrated instructions here:

Seems like a big deal, but it's really pretty simple.
