I'm new to Hijack this and to this site, so thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
I have a peer-to-peer network with 3 Windows XP PRO Pcs. One of these functions as a "server". This is where the shared files are located. When a client PC access some MS FrontPage files from the server via a mapped network drive, he can usually open the files, however when he tries to make any changes and save the files back to the "server" PC, the PC locks up and the user can't do anything else on his PC until he restarts. (At this point, he also restarts the server and it seems to then allow him to then be able to access the files again.) However, when he makes changes and tries to save them back, it locks up again. On the "server" PC, no symptoms are noticable.
I have tried to update NIC drivers on both ends, we have replaced/upgraded the router from a Linksys BEFSR41 to a Netgear FVS318 with no change. I have run a malwarebytes antimalware scan against both PCs with only minor problems being detected. I do have hijackthis logs for both PCs if you think they would be helpful.
Both PCs are running Norton Antivirus 188.8.131.52 (I don't see a version number other than this.). I have configured Norton to not scan the files from the mapped network drive.
Additionally on the "server", when the user locks up these shared files from the client PC, the "server" PC will lock up on the windows is shutting down screen until you hard power it off or pull the plug. This seems to only happen on the server whenever this shared files problem happens
Thanks for any help. I am trying to save them from reformatting the "server" PC. I originally posted this in the general XP PRO/HOME section, but someone suggested I might move this to the networking forum.
