Cannot access the submenu to set sharing?

When I right click the mouse on a folder and then click on the sharing option - nothing happens - not a thing - it was working but now does not? What can have happened that has killed this option? I'm trying to find the windows process controlling this and why it has suddenly stopped functioning. All the usual things regarding permissions etc.. have not been altered. Any advice would be appreciated.

A little more information MikeJ101 please. What is the operating system you are using?

The OS is XP Pro with SP2 installed (all sorts of strange things have happened since SP2 was put on) - admin rights are full - no restrictions - Norton PFW and Kaspersky AV - have tried turning both off and no difference. Microsoft Anti hacker is installed but turning that off doesn't make any dif. Anything else I can tell you ?

I think it`s to do with "simple file sharing" Look it up in Help & Support and either enable or disable it.

have tried disabling/enabling SFS and makes no difference. If SFS is disabled I can set sharing from the CM console OK - but it's a long winded way of sharing the odd folder or two - I'm a bit puzzled - maybe it's time to reinstall XP - some strange things going on ever since I put SP2 on here
