Here is post number 15

ok now i can't even access the main computer from the second computer.


No where in this post, does it say that there "is no error message" :whistling:

also......

Where in these instructions does it say anything about "network connections" :help:

Double click your My Computer Icon
In the left gray column, under Other Places, Click on My Network Places,
In the left gray column, under Network Tasks, Click on View Workgroup Computers
Post back if you get a Error Message now, OR <REPLY 1>
A second window is displayed containing the set of computers in your workgroup
Double-click the computer containing the shared folder,
Post back if you get a Error Message now, OR <REPLY 2>
Double-click the shared folder
Post back if you get a Error Message now. <REPLY 3>

Network connections is what you get if type in ncpa.cpl in the Run box. :blink:

Are you attempting to tell me that after you follow these steps ....

Double click your My Computer Icon
In the left gray column, under Other Places, Click on My Network Places,
In the left gray column, under Network Tasks, Click on View Workgroup Computers

and you click on "View Workgroup Computers" nothing happens, as in you get no error message and the PC sits and sits and sits and does nothing.... ? .... if so, this is not an uncommon error also, so dont fret. :)

The following steps are to be completed on BOTH COMPUTERS and the directed <replies> need to be labelled for what PC, the reply is for. Please do not skip any of these steps, no matter how mundane, boring, or worthless you think they may be, as I do not want to revisit them again later.
