Folder Share Loss

I have a new Dell desktop running Windows XP Pro. I share a folder on the root of the C drive. Everything works fine until I reboot. Then the share is removed automatically. I have to go in and share the folder after every reboot. Why?

Try checking if the share already exists when you boot up by going to

Start> Run Regedit

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\Shares

Check your event log, for the following error....
"Not Enough Server Storage Is Available to Process This Command".

Also, in the registry, chek the value in the below key. Default is 15.
 HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\IRPStackSize

Increase in increments of 3, and reboot, and make sure the share is present at each reboot....  I have seen this value do odd things with shares....

The issue was solved. Dell had shipped the machine with a utility program that would control sharing on the machine. Once removed the control over sharing was given back to the OS. Thanks to those that tried to solve the issue.
