PLEASE CLOSE THIS TOPIC - I've moved it to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic442618.html

I just spent two days removing some stupid rootkit.zeroaccess virus from my desktop running Vista Home Premium. I finally ended up using ComboFix to remove the virus successfully.

Since removal though, my home network isn't functioning correctly. (no problems previously)

I can see and share files from my desktop TO my laptop (also running vista home premium), however on the Laptop, I can see the Desktop computer under VIEW COMPUTERS AND DEVICES, but get an error message each time I try to access. Error 'Windows cannot access \\SHAWNSDESKTOP', 'The network path was not found.'

Additionally, when I try to PING the desktop from the laptop, it fails. It works from the opposite direction.

Sharing and discovery is enabled on both computers.

Suggestions? Pulling my hair out. Thanks in advance.
