The only change is that I can no longer see the network from the laptop. Before, i could see the network and the desktop computer, but I received the error message when I tried to access the desktop files from the laptop.

After performing the last two steps, there's no change.

That's correct. When I open Windows Explorer, I can see the files shared on the laptop, a ftp site I use, and "My Web Sites on MSN", of which I have none.
