I know my reply may not have been helpful, but I meant it seriously. Don't know how the choice would get changed unless somebody has access to your computer, either physically or by some type of remote login. Are you positive that it was off at one time?

You can try looking in the Event Viewer to see when it was enabled (Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer, or type eventvwr.exe and hit Enter). Look in Windows Logs->System. You might see when File and Printer Sharing was enabled. Use the 'Find' function.

OR
who is using it at the moment ??
and which file is in use ?
If you suspect another PC is connecting to your PC, go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Computer Management, or type compmgmt.msc and hit Enter. Then go to System Tools->Shared Folders->Sessions and Open Files.

You could also use the netstat command to see all your PC's active connections. Click system menu, type cmd, then right-click cmd.exe and choose 'Run as administrator'. Then in the command prompt box that appears, type
Code:
netstat -b -f
and see if anything suspicious is there.
