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".

 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.
