Shared Printer resets to Not Shared when computer restarts

By jmmdmd ·
I have an HP printer set up as a Network Printer hard wired with it's own IP address. 5 of my networked PCs see the printer, 1 cannot. I have this PC sharing the printer through another PC but every time PC #1 restarts, the printer is no longer shared. If I share it, it lasts all day but the next day we start all over. HP support says there has to be something wrong with the PC that can't see the printer (even though it can ping it). Nevertheless, I'm more concerned with why printer sharing resets every day. Any help would be appreciated. (All computers are XP Pro SP2.)
