I cannot move, rename, write to, or do anything besides open files from any of the shared folders. I have tried using both admin accounts (my wife's and mine) to change permissions with CACLS, but after "thinks" about it for a couple seconds, it says "Access is denied". Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you for the reply, that was one of the first things that I did. All folders are read-only, but it won't let me change the permissions.

Thanks Garmanma. I had the same problem and was able to use the link you indicated to fix it. I don't know if it's a bug or not, but the way I got into the situation was by changing Shared Documents (with XP Home) to "Share this folder on the network". That worked fine. When I was done sharing my files, I went back and unchecked that box. That left my Shared Documents so I (as an administrator) could not access it.

Thanks again for the answer!!
