Hi, my second computer has been on my network for a bit now flawlessly. I did my weekly registry tweaks for that computer, etc. and recently I cannot access the networked files I have shared... Ok, no problem, right? Well, tonight the printer stopped working. I uninstalled it and went to re-add it, and guess what. I see Windows Network, and when I try to browse it, it won't let me in. My host computer is fine, but the second one needs the printer lol Can anyone help? Also, system restore did not help.

Problem solved. I have a friend who I allow to come into my router so we can play LAN games, and his IP address became .3 , which was the IP that the other computer was suposed to have. All I did to fix this was tell Zone Alarm to allow .4 :whistling: Thanks anyway :blink:
