    XP SP2 Computer on wireless network loses permissions to share files and folders

    I have a computer with XP SP2 that loses the sharing almost every time that
    an update is received from Microsoft. It is networked with a Vista Home
    Premium 64 computer that is hard wired to the router. The Vista machine has
    no problems but the XP machine loses the permissions in the sharing when
    updates are installed.

    Any ideas?

    Is there any particular reason the XP box isn't running Service Pack
    3?

    Also, what protocols are you running on each box, _just_ TCP/IP, or
    what?

    My mistake, latest service pack and all updates since are installed.

    Installed protocols on the XP SP3 machine are:
    TCP/IP
    Client for Microsoft Networks
    File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
    QOS Packet Scheduler
    Pure Networks Device Discovery Driver
    Pure Networks Wireless Driver

    Ron, I want to clear up my own confusion; could you describe 'looses
    the sharing' i another way?


    Do you mean the system has 'file sharing' enabled but the share is
    lost during updates? Or do you mean something else altogether?

    Maybe you mean you are using a box (NAT Router) to 'share' the network
    connection and _this_ is what is lost during updates.

    The sharing of folders on the XP machine are still shown as shared but the
    permissions associated with the sharing of these folders has been unchecked
    on the sharing setup. This has the result that the folders can be seen by
    the remote computer but nothing can be sent to the folders or copied from
    them. When the permissions box is checked on each of the folders on the XP
    machine, transfer of files both ways is possible.

    Interestingly, when the sharing does not allow the remote computer to send
    or receive files from the XP machine, that XP machine can send and receive
    files from the shared folders on the Vista Home Premium 64 machine.

    The connection is fine. Just the permissions associated with sharing are
    lost on the XP machine.

    odd, thats the opposite of mine, all my xp/linux/etc file shares stay in
    place, EXCEPT for vista losing it/them every time for updates and
    restarts... wonder how you keep vista from losing them... i'll trade ya! :)

    I've never had a problem sharing from the Vista computer but the XP computer
    is another story. When I had 2 XP machines it seemed like they took turns
    making life "interesting<;-) "
