Shares on windows 7 computer randomly stop sharing

We have a windows 7 pro computer that is just sharing files on our network.  For some reason it will just randomly stop sharing them and then after a reboot of the computer it's fine again.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  It's causing a lot of problems.  We are running both windows xp and windows 7 computers on our network.  Mostly XP machines.

Try to change this registry value from "1" to "3":

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\size

If that doesn't work, can you post any relevant error codes from your event logs?

Coincidentally enough, another EE community member asked a question less than two hours ago that is nearly identical to yours:

Thanks

I'll let you know if we lose the shares over the course of the weekend.  Hopefully not :-)
