You folks were extremely helpful when I had difficulty getting rid of some spyware, so here's another one:
The machine in question is running WinXP Pro. This is a small office with ten computers or so all connected to a central router/hub. We are all on the same workgroup.
Last week I disconnected this computer and took it home to test an Internet connection. When I brought it back and plugged the network cable back in, the Internet was (and still is) fine, but I could not see any other users on the network (and they could not see this computer). I made no changes at home other than plugging a cable modem into it to see if the connection worked (it did), then I unplugged it and brought it back to work.
I tried changing the workgroup name, leaving it for a while, then changing it back, but no luck so far. When I try to 'view workgroup' computers, it comes up with a dialogue box that says:
[workgroup] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available
I can provide any additional info if needed.
Thanks in advance!
