Windows 7: Not Responding when Trying to Set up Folder Sharing

Not Responding when Trying to Set up Folder Sharing

I'm trying to set up my boss's computer with a folder on her C: drive for her scans from our office copier. Her laptop is part of our network. Our servers run Server 2003 R2. Her laptop is new and is a 64-bit Windows 7 pro. When I try to set up the sharing it gets hung up and says Sharing Files (with the green progress bar going and me being alerted that it may take a few minutes). Then it just says at the top after a long while that it's not responding. If I wait it out it then says that the folder is shared but when I try to do things like view its properties it just starts to not respond again.

Is it a compatibility issue with Server 2003 and Windows 7 or possible a problem with her computer?

I personally would not share any folder on the C drive other than the Public folders that are already shared.
I would use the folder Public Documents to put the scanned files in.

All the other computers in the office have the scanner sending the scans to their folder on the C: drive in a shared folder called scans. It uses their IP address. I don't know if this is how this particular scanner must work but that is how the company originally set it up. None of us can actually get to anyone else's scans or that folder. It's just shared with the printer from what I can tell.
