This sounds like a Windows 2000 problem more than an XP issue. But since they are based on the same kernel, you might be having the same problem. In order to fix your issue, login to your computer as the admin. Go to:

1. C:\Documents And Settings

2. Right click on your directory

3. Click Properties.

4. Switch to the "Sharing" tab

4. Check the box that says "Make This Folder Private"

That will do it. My advice is that if you are going to use your XP machine as a workstation, revert back to the Windows 2000 settings so that you can have more control over what users can and can not do with your machine.

I am having the same problem... however, I am unable to click that tab!!!! Can anyone think of a reason why I am not able to click it? (I am running Fat32)

Thanks.

If I reinstall (clean) can I change over to NTFS without having to worry about conflicts? I am not running any other OSs on this computer nor networking.

Thanks,

Steve

If you are running FAT32, you can convert to NTFS without a reinstall. Simply open a command prompt and type:

convert c:/fs:ntfs

Then reboot.

It will convert it and you'll be all set.
