Windows 7/xp sharing issue

By IT_Girl_47 ·
I recently deployed a new windows 7 workstation that was built from an image. 3 other PC's were deployed days before this one with the same image and not experiencing this issue. What is happening is that every so often any other workstation that is running windows XP loses the ability to connect to the shares on this windows 7 machine. When the windows 7 user reboots the PC, all works properly for a few hours, days, etc. The computers are on a domain and not on a workgroup. The firewall on the windows 7 PC is totally disabled. I have searched online at this issue but not finding anything that is fixing my issue. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have seen this a few times as well, and I'm sure you will have already tried everything I could advise, I had this issue 2 weeks ago with my customer and after 2 and a half hours I still couldn't fix it and couldn't get paid for trying either.
The previous time this happened my customer on that occasion later reported that the fault had cleared itself after a Windows update.
I shall watch here with interest....
