Here's How to disable Simple File Sharing in XP.

    1. Open My Computer from the Start Menu or Windows XP Desktop. A new My Computer window will appear.
    2. Open the Tools menu and choose the "Folder Options..." option from this menu. A new Folder Options window will appear.
    3. Click on the View tab and locate the "Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)" checkbox in the list of Advanced Settings.
    4. To disable Simple File Sharing, ensure this checkbox is not checked. Click inside the checkbox to alternately enable and disable the option.
    5. Click OK to close the Folder Options window. The settings for Simple File Sharing are now updated; no computer reboot is required.
