  Windows XP File Sharing Mysteries: Part 1

Using XP Home Edition SP1, Drive C files were shared on a local net with other computers by selecting the share options on the "Sharing and Security" Sharing tab.
In the Control Panel/User Accounts, I set up a password. I found this cumbersome, so I deleted the password.
Now the Drive C files under "Documents and Settings/Username" cannot be shared. The option in the "Sharing and Security" Sharing tab is grey or disabled.
How can I enable this option and set the files to share again?
