Sharing Folders Fail

By BorgInva ·
I have a problem trying to share my folders on my local PC now. I have been able to share before but all of the sudden, I can not. No idea why. This is my error:

An error has occurred while trying to share <filename>. The Server service is not started. The shared resource was not created at this time.

Now I have done some searching and found several sites saying the same thing about restarting the service called Server. However, that service does not exist in my services.

Any ideas?

No virus, spyware, hacks, or anything of the such is/was an issue.

Network Setup Wizard

I ran the Network Setup Wizard and that added the service back in.

Still Problems

by BorgInva In reply to Sharing Folders Fail

I am still having problems. I can share files now on each PC but they can not see each other (just themselves). I have a PC wired to a new, wireless router. A laptop connecting wireless.

I can access the main PC via Remote Desktop, VNC, VNC via http locally, and my website internally. All done via,, Still, neither PC will see each others shared folders.

All firewalls and AVs disabled. Main PC uses AVG FREE and Windows Firewall. Laptop uses Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security.

Any tips or tricks?
