File Sharing Broken
Hi All,

Vista Ultimate.

I have about 8 users on the machine. All of a sudden, if I try add a
user FOO to an existing share by selecting it from the drop-down list
box and clicking ADD, I get the message

"unable to locate user FOO".

Obviously the user exists, else it would not be in the drop-down list
box. If I do "Everyone", that works for some odd reason. If I create a
new user beyond the 8 that I already have and try to add the new one,
that works. So right now, the only user in the share is the one who
is logged in.

I noticed that C:\NTUSER.DAT has file size 0 if that means anything.

Any help much appreciated.
