Cannot turn 'on' sharring

Hi, i installed my W7 RC few days ago, and there is a little problem, a cannot share any folders and cannot turn on sharring in my home network.

Also event viewer logs something like this -> "The Computer Browser service depends the following service: LanmanServer. This service might not be installed." Help.

A problem with either the install or something since. Did file sharing ever work in this install? if so do you have a backup?

Start > Services (type it in the search field)

Look for the "Server" service. Right-click on it > properties

make sure it is set to Automatic and Started.

(by default it is Automatic unless something messed with it)
