Sharing Tab Missing

Will the network-related problems never end?...

New situation. I now find that there is no "sharing" tab when I look at the
properties of any of my disk partitions. C:, D:, E: are all on the same
physical 500gB drive, with the latter two being used to isolate data. Until
recently all of the drives had the sharing tab. I've already Googled for
fixes but all the recommendations seem to be "Disable simple file sharing",
"NO, don't disable it, enable it". Well, I've followed every recommendation
and looked into every obscure corner and still can't get the tab(s) back.
All services that appear relevant are running. I've un-installed and
re-installed Client for Microsoft Networks and File and Printer Sharing for
Microsoft Networks. I can't get any restore points to load so there is no
going back (this is probably a different problem and will be tackled later).

So, any hints on what to do next? I'd really like to move forward on my
wider network problems but need to take things one at a time.

System is XP Pro, SP3, all patches installed on a seemingly-stable P4
Shuttle SFF computer with Gigabit LAN and ATI 9600 graphics.
