Hi. Hoping the experts on here can help me out.
I receive the message "A duplicate name exists on the network" when I start up my desktop. I am using Windows XP Home edition on an e-Machines. It has SP2 and I have searched all the available tutorials for this fix and can't find it.
I have isolated it to the "workstation" services in the windows services through msconfig but can't figure out how to fix it other than leaving the system service turned off. I can't do that forever, and I am hoping someone knows how the heck I can fix this problem. It just showed up out of the blue. Microsoft is no help. They want $60 to tell me they can't help me, and I am not willing to pay that for very little assistance, if any.
Thank to anyone who knows the answer. I am forever grateful.
