I have 2 desktops that are running WinXP Pro w/ all updates apllied. My laptop is running Vista Home. The 2 desktops communicate and file share without issue. The problem is with the laptop. I can't see the laptop on either of the desktops. I can see the desktops on the laptop but it is random and when they are visible I am denied access (I believe the error reads something to the effect of Windows can not access the network). I have made sure that all the workgroups are the same and that all systems have file and printer sharing enabled. All 3 pc's are behind the same router and each have a software firewall as well. I have made sure that all the software firewall's are turned off but I sitll have the same issue. Can anyone help???????
