    Hi people,

    Okay got a little problem with Windows File Sharing in Mac OS 10.2.6.

    I enable it and even lock the Services tab but if I shut my computer down or send it to sleep it loses the tick in the Windows File Sharing option!

    I go back into System Preferences and enable it again but still it will lose the tick in the box!

    It has only just been doing this and I don't understand why as I haven't installed any additional software.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Yeah I have full administrator rights to the local machine. I have even logged on as root and amended the settings but it always flicks back.

    I'd repair the permissions on the hard disk.

    Is it just me, or is a permissions repair to OS X what a clean re-install was to System 7 through OS 9.2?
