    If I go to windows explorer, click tools, folder options, view, there is no option for turning on, or off simple file sharing. I already tried the system services turn on ,and that didn't help it was already started. I want to share my program files with my laptop on my lan, so I need this setting.

    Simple File Sharing (from what I know) cannot be turned off in XP home. It's a problem which annoys me just as much, since Simple File Sharing is hardly simple.

    Wait for more knowledgable users to respond, though. There's probably some workaround out there.
