I tried the steps you suggested, but am still having the problem. Not sure
if it mattered, but I restarted as well.
Just to clarify, the problem I'm having is in My Computer, when I'm trying
to drag and drop files between drives, especially to/from a USB flash drive.
My Sharing Folders is showing up along with other drives, and when I happen
to cross over the My Sharing Folder item, it pops up telling me I have to be
logged on to use it.
Bottom line is that I want it to go away from My Computer. The change you
suggested below seems to relate to use of Sharing Folders within Messenger.
Any other ideas?
