losing file permissions

By it.guy ·
I have an XP P2P network and am losing the Everyone permission on a shared file whenever the hosting machine is shut down. The rights are set to NOT inherit for both folder and file...any thoughts or suggestions where to look?

make sure the ADMIN$ is running. If it is not, shares will need to be redone after reboots

Forgot to add that the network is XP Home, so yes simple file sharing is on :-(
