    Go away simple file sharing!!!

    In XP folder options we are unchecking the option 'Use simple file sharing'

    Upon reboot, the setting is checked again! Local admin accounts and no domain.

    Any ideas as it will confuse our Sophos setup

    You may be able to do it in the local security policy

    Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Local Security policy

    not 100% sure though.

    Create or Mod a GPO for your workstations
    Under Computer Config

    select 'Local Policies|Security Options|Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts'
    tick 'Define this policy setting:'
    select 'Classic - local users authenticate as themselves'
    click 'OK'.

    All done.
