Network drives not responding

By dave.raj ·
Hi, Got a Windows Explorer error on one of the Desktops at work. The desktop is running Windows 2000. When going into Windows Explorer and trying to access network drives(f,s,t), the Windows Explorer stops responding, cannot see any network items. Going into C:/drive is ok. I have applied the latest Windows update, done the usual virus checking and defragging the hard drive.

Please help

Regards
Dave

Have any of the login details changed - Username or password?

It is possible that the computer that the drives are mapped to is not allowing access because of security. Try mapping another drive but this time login as a different user and see if this helps.

Several things spring to mind immediately... Apologies if any of these seem "obvious and dumb" but I need to start somewhere, right? :-)

Firstly the pc that the drives are mapped to could be turned off.

Secondly is the user account locked out?

Thirdly can you still see other network items (e-mail, internet etc?). Check the network cable and/or dead network card/wall port.

Fourthly check number three on the "host" pc.

Dave,
I had the same problem after applying the windows updates. Go into windows explorer, tools, options, and uncheck "enable offline files".
