I used ActiveKilldisk to wipe my hd on my laptop and start from scratch. I installed Windows XP SP2 successfully and all of my other programs ( Microsoft Office, Firefox, D-Link wireless card drivers) and I get this message "A duplicate name exist on the network" My laptop connects to the router at my Desktop PC. How to I fix this error message?

Just checking, but you used a seperate operating system serial number, right? When you installed the operating system, what did you name the computer? Is it the same as the desktop?
