I'm sorry, but I cannot think of anything else that might work...my only guess is something is so wrong with the registry that permissions are hoarked up beyond recognition or I am missing something patently obvious

Unless....is this file system ntfs or fat32?

I have an NTFS. But, would that mean I would have to reformat to correct the problem?

At this moment, I would say yes...because something is clearly wrong, but I cannot tell from what information we have.

Nothing in eventvwer corresponds to your attempts, does it?

start > run
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Nothing that matches the times i try to access file properties or sharing/secrety. But, if it helps the My Document icon now works with Properties...But only the My Document icon on the desktop. Here are the export logs if any of it helps. But, secretity was empty.

a simple log of information and erros does not tell me much....though I am curious about all the logitech errors

Logitech mouse?

Other than the fact that you cannot access the menu...what is your ultimate goal here? Are you trying to share, not share? What?

Does simple file sharing not work?

What are you trying to achieve?

i see where gerry is going here..but i'm gonna throw this in as a last ditch kind of deal
just on the off chance it will work before you reformat
Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

SFC - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.
