I've been running Windows 2008 for about 2 years and haven't seen this problem. I don't think UAC has anything to do with this. Instead of clicking on Share, click on Advanced Sharing, set it up under there, and see if that helps.
Is there any 3rd party utilities, apps, firewalls, security software, etc, installed? Or Dave's question about F&S bound?
