I've recently been having the problem of not being to access files on my old computer (lets call it PC0) from my new one (PC1).

I have Folder sharing enabled and have enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP. Microsoft File and Printer Sharing is installed. Both computers have the same Workgroup name, yet when I click on "View Workgroup Computers" i cannot see either computer's Shared folders.

When I ping my old computer (PC0) from my new one (PC1) it responds as you can see here.


C:\Documents and Settings\Leonid88>ping 192.168.0.101

Pinging 192.168.0.101 with 32 bytes of data:

This problem was not there before.
My old computer (PC0) is running Windows XP Home, and my new one (PC1) is running Win XP Pro.
My question is how do I make these 2 computers see each other's shared files again.

BTW: I have Panda Internet Security on the Old One (PC0) and PC Cillin Internet Security on the new one (PC1)

If anyone has an idea as to what I can do to fix this, I will greatly appreciate your help.

Try disconnecting from the internet (i.e. pull out the cable) then turn off PC-cillin and Panda plus any firewalls that might still be active. Then see if you have access. If you do it's a firewall issue, if not it's - er - something else. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the response I'll try what you said tommorow, as I have not have had access to both PCs for a few days...

BTW: The Firewall Configuration Settings where greyed out in PC-Cillin for some reason. I reinstalled it and it is fine now (PC Cillin). Do you think that could have had anything to do with my issue?

UPDATE: I finnally have access to both computers (been a week almost...).
When I try turning on the old computer and logging in it seems to be loading even though it does not load. For example it will just sit there for 30 minutes and not load any programs and the Taskbar will be in 1 color. (loading??) I've been able to run HouseCall on Trend Micro. It found 13(!) viruses. Now it seems to get further into loading but still does not boot up normally. Any idea what the problem could be?

I think it's time for you to POST a HighJackThis log in the HJT forum. Please read ALL the pinned Topic and do not modify your log. The HJT log, if modified incorrectly, can damage your Windows operating system and cause you to reinstall XP.

Try this:
Start > Run

Type in \\192.168.0.101\

This will let you know if you can access the other computer, it is like a bypass to "viewing workgroup computers."
