By default, folders have no lock icon on them, but once shared in a homegroup, the lock appears if you unshare. I want to know how to reset this in the registry, as I can find no other way to do it.

I left the homegroup on all computers, effectively dissolving it, but all the folders that were shared at the time also developed locks on their icons (I was getting rid of an orphaned shared folder).

Thanks
