    i have two computers networked through a router. on both computers i have
    shared folders. when i go to my network places on either it's empty. however
    when i go to my network places > view workgroup computer > computername i can
    see the shared folders.

    "automatically search for network folder and printers" is off. is this the
    problem? or should shared folders show up in my network places regardless?
