Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assign the users local admin rights and check, otherwise you can share the folders, printer logging with local administrator.

Check you don’t have any GPO settings that stop this happening

    tnx for the idea RichS, i will look into that. but as far as i remember, i havnt put any GPO yet, only the default settings(once joined into the domain) is in there. what i think is, while users/workstations are logged-in into the domain using their own account, they have the ability to share files and printers. the problem is, the SHARING feature is gone once they right-click on the folder they want to share..... i really want to solve the issue and how will i going to solve it. are there any instructions to follow?
