Missing Button in File & Printer Sharing

Windows 98 SE workstations on a Windows 2000 server.  The workstations have File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks installed on each computer.  When the File and Printer Sharing is highlighted, there should be a button appear that says "File and Print Sharing ..." but this button does not show.

Could it be a corrupted file?  If so, which one?  Does a policy control this?  How and what do I change in the policy?  There are no policies specified at the present THAT I KNOW OF.  However the computer will not allow me to re-install File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, saying that the policy does not allow it.  This is true even though I am logged on as administrator with full rights.

Your suggestions please!
