    i have networked my 2 dell computers together and it will not let me have access to the windows folder or the program files folder.. i have tryed to go to each folder and share them and it says it can not share because they are being used by the operating system.
    i networked the computers before and didnt have any problems with it , i had access to all files and folders.is there something i am doing wrong or something i have to do to allow this??? i have 2 dell computers with windows xp home edition.. i can get into all other folders except windows and program files.. any help would be great!!!!!!!

    It might be easier just to mark the entire C drive as shared. That way, you can access anything on that drive from the other computer.

    You can also password each C drive if security is a concern.

    This is with simple sharing, I have no trouble sharing all of the folders on any drive using XP-Pro and Win-2K.
