Ok I had a network with myself and my wife on it no problem now however although i can see all computers on the network and although wife can access me i cant access her (computer) and I can't think or find why at all.
The only things that have changed are that she installed spybot and I had specified a network address (pre router so I could connect to cable modem I used the same mac address as wifes ) and now thats set as value not present.
And thats all i know ............... this did however happen on another network years ago when I shared a house with friends though i think that was nothing to do with me i think i was somehow getting blocked but i dont know enough to know if you know what i mean.
Any suggestions would be great as i'm about to reinstall and would like to get this working afterwards :thumbsup:

Well, spybot can cause lots of problems with windows file sharing. Also you will NOT want two computers on the same network to have the same MAC address as that would cause massive collisions.
