I put in a password to log in on Windows XP, where another user is using the computer. I then removed the password, so we could share all folders.

However, now, I cannot browse to the other user. although he can browse to me.

In "Sharing and Security" the "Make My folders Private" is checked, and I want to uncheck it. However, it is checked AND grayed out, so I cannot change it.

I ran the "sharing" wizard, but that does not help.

How do I get the grayed out checkmark UNchecked for "make my folders private"???

Thanks

How do I log on as "admin" and still keep my settings as who I am on the computer? Isn't logging on as "admin" a separate user? If not, if you could please let me know how I would do that, I would be most appreciative. Thanks!
