In our small company, I've set up a network. Works well on the whole.

Recently I bought a new XP desktop to replace a laptop.

It is connecting to the network okay, can browse the internet through the gateway, and view other pcs shared folders (6 x XPs, 2x Vista).

My problem is no-one can access the shared folder on this new machine. Error is:

\\Riggers is not accessible

I can ping Riggers thru the LAN fine.

I used control userpasswords2 to reset the password for the guest account, and unchecked 'users need a password to access this pc'. Now other pcs are presented with a dialogue:


It is asking for a password, but there is none, clicking return just causes the dialogue to reappear.

Following help in winhlp.comm I checked the registry key RestrictAnonymous. Its is set to zero.

Disabling AVG firewall has no effect.

Please help... I am stumped!

Thank you

1st of all is it your xp desktop didn't on its printer and file sharing?
2nd is that your windows xp desktop's version is up to date same as your laptop?
i faced this problem before, but after my pc update till the latest, all going smooth
Hope my point of view helps you :thumbsup:
