Problem sharing with Office 2003

by CltLwyr / June 15, 2009 6:54 AM PDT

We have a small 3 person office with each person running a Windows XP Pro machine with Office 2003 on it. The server is Windows Server 2003 Standard.

On my machine, I have shared my calendar and contacts. Same with user two. When I want to look at his calendar, I can go to Open Shared Calendar. I click the "name" button and the "Select Name" box appears. In the "Show Names from the:" drop down box I select "All Users". The names appear, and I pick user two, and get his calendar.

We had this arangement working with my secretary, and then upgraded her machine. I have her back on the nextwork, logging in as the same user she was before. However, when she clicks on the "Show Names from the:" drop down box she is not given the choice of "All Users". If she just types in the name of the user (along with the domain) she gets a message saying ?Unable to display the folder. Your profile is not configured to support this operation for this user?.

Any ideas on what I have to do to get her back in good graces with my
machine and the server?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
