Can't Share Folder

    Running several computers all with WindowsXP Professional.
    I typically have a shared folder on each computer named "Public". This
    allows me to send files back & forth to each computer. Just recently, one
    computer stopped sharing. The proper icon is displayed... that is, it shows
    the Hand underneath the icon as if it is shared. But you can't see this
    folder via the network or from other computers.

    I'm guessing it might be the network card, but I have no issues getting on
    the Internet.
    Any Ideas?

    Sometimes, remove and resharing fixes it.
