From time to time, I seem to lose access to the printer and shares that are set up on my wife's PC.
The printer is connected via USB to her PC.

I can see the shares (Folders that I set up with sharing turned on) but I can't access them. Here is the message I get:

" 'Share' is not accessible. You might not have permission to use the network resource. Contact the Administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found."

My account on that PC is set up as an Administrator and is exactly the same as on my PC! (User name and password)

It was my default printer and was working fine until I had to reload the print drivers on her PC.

After attempting to delete the printer in my 'Printer and Faxes' dialog box, I can no longer see the Printer on the her PC, even though File and Print Sharing is turned on in the Network Settings, and Sharing is turned on in the Printer Properties.
