    I bought a wireless router a couple of months ago because it was getting annoying, my mother coming in and out of my room every so often asking me to check things for her. :(

    I also set up some sharing folders so that she'd be able to access my music, because we have the same taste in music, but I've just been messing around on the laptop and noticed the sharing folders aren't working anymore.
    I looked on the 'View Tab' in folders options and the option for 'Use Simple File Sharing' wasn' t there.

    I'm running Windows XP Professional on this PC
    And the laptop is running Windows Home Edition.

    Anyone got any ideas as to what's wrong?

    Uh, no. Could you be more explicit about your problem? It seems that it may have something to do with "the sharing folders aren't working" (and I don't know what you mean by that) or that you can no longer use Simple File Sharing on the XP Pro machine.
