I am getting a bit tired of file sharing on wondows home!!

I have a pc with windows home installed, and 3 user accounts.

User account 1 fine - can share the files
User account 2 fine - can share the files
User account 3 cant share the files or see them from my other PC. I dont even get ''My Network Places'' on the menu bar. All accounts are set as administrators.I go to my documents and cright click, the share file option is greyed out.

Is there some setting on the set up I have neglected?

For XP Home, you need to reboot into safe mode to share files...logged in as Administrator

Start->Run->MSconfig
from the boot.ini tab, select Safe Boot and reboot...
