Try without the quotes and it gives loads of links, I get 1050000 results!

Try this one which is from microsoft directly:-
http://makeashorterlink.com/?E29742F1A

This is how to enable a nullshare on a 2k box, but is the same for an XP
box. If you are not familiar with using the registry let me know the name
of your share and I'll send you an importable registry key that you can
double click on to add it.

Thanks for the offer; no problem editing the registry using the info on
the Microsoft page. But I must try to be less literal; when someone
says to google for " ", that's what I do.

We really need a metaquote character to define whether a Google search
is with or without quotes.

Hmm hard one, I think I generally assume that you do not include the quotes
unless specified. I don't think ' is any better. It's all too much of a
headache especially when programming and trying to pass quotes to a command
line that needs a quote passed to it!
