I have a Vista machine that somehow the network settings keep getting borked.One time it will "see the XP unit also on my system, the next time it won't. The permissions seem to keep getting screwed up as well sometimes it will tell me I cannot even access my own files or folders.

I cannot find anything equivalent to "network wizard" and the "network discovery" thing does not work. Like I said, one time it sees the XP machine, next time it doesn't.

The XP machine sees the Vista at all times, but for whatever reason, access denied, even when I set permissions to "everyone"

At this point I just want to reset everything and start all over again.
I use a router and sunbelt firewall.
