Disable Simple Sharing in Windows XP

Have you ever tried to share something in Windows XP, and came across that stupid “Simple Sharing” dialog? Wouldn't you like to disable it, and get to the Windows 2000/2003 version? Well, it's really simple. In Windows Explorer window, select “Tools | Folder Options”. Then select the “View” tab, and scroll all the way down to the bottom. Uncheck the last tab “Use Simple Sharing” and click ok. Now you're all set. :)
