    sharing & properties for folders/dik not available

    Help. Just started using windows 2Kpro. I am logged on as administrator, when I right click on any folder or installed drive the sharing & properties options do not work. If I right click on a file I can chose options. What have I done? Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: sharing & properties for folders/dik not available

    Sounds like a registry entry got munged for your default folders. Without digging it's probably not a simple solution.

    You could try running the system file checker, but I doubt it would find the problem - although it's certainly worth a try, if you're uncomfortable in the registry.

    Re: sharing & properties for folders/dik not available

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for your prompt reply. I tried your suggestion but the problem remained. Other symptoms were that "services & Applications" in Administrative Tools would hang and IIS would not start. This morning I removed IIS web server and BINGO! Everything seems to be working OK now. Just a couple of error messages in System Log "the value named IRPStackSize in the server's Registry key LanmanServerParameters was invalid. The value was ignored, and processing continued. " and Application Log "WMI ADAP was unable to load the winspool.drv performance library due to an unknown problem within the library: 0x0 ".
    I have only just taken delivery of this PC & I installed IIS myself. I am now wondering whether the Win 2000 CD Rom I have is exactly the same as what was used to install on the PC. I will ask the supplier.
    Once again thanks for your response, it is very much appreciated.

    Stan

    IIS did it, eh? I'll remember that one.

    The IRPStackSize and WMI ADAP errors I have seen aplenty on nearly all my 2000 systems with IIS installed. I never bothered to troubleshoot them because they never affected operation, but it seems to be 'normal'. Hey, it's not a bug, it's a feature. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Glad to hear you resolved it!
