    Hi,
    I am running a new install of XP professional on a newly built Shuttle desktop, connected to my network and the internet via a Linksys wireless router (this computer is wired).

    I have no trouble reading shared folders on other workgroup computers, and no trouble sharing the Shared Documents folder on the desktop. However, whenever I attempt to turn on filesharing for any other folder (right-clidking and selecting 'Sharing and Security ...') Windows Explorer freezes and I get an error message stating it needs to close. I send the error report, then get a DrWatson Debugger error message saying it also needs to close. I send that error report and then WExplorer freezes and I have to exit via the Task Manager, after which WExplorer runs fine.

    I haven't found any reference to this problem anywhere; does anyone have any idea what it could be?

    Thanks,
    roma2
