    PC1 - Vista Ultimate
    PC2 - WinXP Pro
    PC3 - WinXP OEM (embedded in a machine controller)

    The Problem:
    PC1 and PC3 can 'see' other PC when browsing Network Neighborhood but
    always fail when trying to browse files/folders on the other PC ('no
    permissions' or some such msg).

    What works:
    PC2 can see/share files/folders with PC1 and PC3; no problem

    All have given 'everyone' full control on file sharing permissions and
    security
    All can browse Internet

    All have same Workgroup name
    All have 'consistant' IP/Sub-net addresses (192.168.22.x)
    All can ping each other

    All have a 'common' account name ("Tony") with same password on each
    machine.
    All have run latest AntiVirus (TrendMicro) and Spyware (Spybot)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

  2. It could be 3rd party security software issue. For troubleshooting, try
    clean boot.
