Just recently one of my computers running XP pro sp3 will not display the sharing tab. I know that Simple File Sharing is disabled. Not I also tried enabling, applying, then re-disabling and applying to no avail. My Sharing tab is missing from all drives. All drives are NTFS. I checked my network connections, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks is installed and enabled. I also looked in the registry at some things I found on line and they all seem normal. As soon as this problem appeared I could only network with the shared folder in this machine. I can see the other folders but can not change, cut or paste any thing. I also did a System restore to a date that it was working and no luck

Hope someone can help.
