Workgroup PC denies access to files

By dartheux ·
Hi guys, I have this problem which is just driving me nuts"!

I have a workgroup set up at my office and, recently I had to re-install two pc's with WinXP plus all the service packs and patches and the rest of it. In total my network has 11 pc's.

Now what happens is; although I see the computer (these two pc's) on the network, as I click on them to browse through the files I get an error message that says something like this: "You don't have access to \\'pc_1'. It may be that you do not have the right permissions to this network resource blah blah blah. " it is not literal ".

I have checked all the permissions to its files, the users that can and cannot access the files, the security, I also disabled the WinXP firewall that comes when installing the SP2, checked to see if all the WinXP services are up-and-running ( I did that by clicking with the right-button onto My Computer -> Manage -> selecting services and I went through all of them to see which are enabled and which are not. I checked with other computers and compared the services that are running in other machines which I do not have this problem with.

Can you guys think of any other reason of why this is happening?

Thanks a lot"!
