Running several computers all with WindowsXP Professional.
I typically have a shared folder on each computer named "Public". This
allows me to send files back & forth to each computer. Just recently, one
computer stopped sharing. The proper icon is displayed... that is, it shows
the Hand underneath the icon as if it is shared. But you cant see this
folder via the network or from other computers.

Im guessing it might be the network card, but I have no issues getting on
the Internet.
Any Ideas?

Simply disconnect, rename, and then reconnect the folder. This happens all the time with our XP users in the office.

What might be easier it to just unshare the folder and right behind that reshare it. This would reapply all permissions and such. Also just to be sure make sure the "server" service is running on the PC. Without that you cannot publish shares.
