every think was fine but suddenly the files and folders on my desktop have lost their shared status. i have gone into "sharing & security" and the "make folder private" is ticked but also greyed out. i have then gone to the general tab and taken the tick out of private gone to change attributes and applied changes but it does not change.
i also get an error popup "server service not started shared resources not created at this time"
any help please [home network is wifi not server ]
installed a update to glary utilities might be suspect. now deleted glary utilities altogether off my pc. can now mark up folders with the share but the wifi laptop cannot access them so got half a fix. still tinkering.
going round in circles here. in explorer the folder has the shared icon, in properties in general tab the attributes have a greyed out tick in read only, but in sharing tab both sharing options are ticked. i keep deleting the read only attribute but in comes back as soon i i open the tab.
still unable to share the files. run network wizard several times, tried sfc scannow, had norton support check my firewall. anyone help a lost soul that has run out of ideas
Rerun Network Wizard in Control Panel create a disc when it ask's and switch on all your computers and printers you want to share with before running the above. Use the Network Disc on other computers while switched on, double click the single file on the disc
