    I have newtork sharing setup on an XP pro sp2 desktop connected to a wireless
    hub. My laptop is running Vista Ultimate. I can access and open files on
    the desktop machine with no problems. When I try to copy a file from my
    destop machine to the laptop I get the message "destination folder access
    denied". So far I've not seen anythind in the support group discussing this
    problem. Any ideas how I can get around this error.

    Thank you for the follow up post. Yes, I've verifiied that I have the
    correct access to copy files to the folder (the folder, called downloaded
    software, was newly created and set up with full access by the admin). As it
    turns out, I did additional testing after posting this message and found the
    problem to be related to Trendmicros systems blocking access to the specific
    exe file I was trying to copy. Trendmicro thought the file was some kind of
    crackgen program. When I access the program directly from the XP machine, I
    saw the error message and removed the restriction on the file and the copy
    ran with no problems.

    Thanks again for the follow-up.
