ok, after a long search across multiple search engines this is what I found

Fixed My Network Filesharing Issue
My Network Filesharing issue is now fixed. Yes, that's right. I fixed it by editting the windows registry. I noticed that in my event logs I was getting these IRPStackSize errors also. Wierd. I went into the registry and changed the decimal number for this setting from 11 to 14, and it fixed my filesharing issue. This issue, I believe, is related to Norton Antivirus and how pervasive it is to the windows system.

The exact registry key was:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

Then... change the value for IRPStackSize. You will need to change the base to decimal otherwise you will just see it's hex value. If the value isn't 11, then just increase your value by three. For instance if you have 15.. move it to 18.

The errors related to this are:

Aug 27 17:39:47 myibook kernel: smb_maperr32: no direct map for 32 bit server error (0xc0000205)

Domain=[YourWindowMachine] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager] tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_INSUFF_SERVER_RESOURCES

(In your event logs you will also notice it complaining about the IRPStackSize.

Ok. It seems like it worked for one of my PCs. I will check it with all of my computers and confirm in a couple of hours. Thank you.
