I am running Windows XP Home Ed. Today, my Shared Documents folder disappeared from the "other places" box along with all the family photos. It doesn't show up in a folder search, or by a file name search. It is not in the recylce bin. Also, access to C:/documents and settings/all users. is being denied. I have a cable (not wireless) network to another computer. I also noticed that the the My Documents icon on the desktop had the sharing hand underneath it this am. but I don't think I ever made it a shared document.
