    I've seen several similar problems posted but I can't resolve this one.

    I have two computers networked together. Both are XPpro, and both are using simple sharing. When I go into the sharing & security settings of the Program Files folder on one of the computers all of the options are grayed out and a little message states that

    "None of these options are available because this folder is used by the OS"

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    JTN
