I installed a new printer on a desktop PC. I then went to a laptop on the network to install that printer as a network printer. It got as far as seeing the PC on the network, then I got an "access denied" when I tried to open the PC's properties under "My Network Places". The printer is enabled for sharing as are the two hard disks on the desktop PC. But for whatever reason I can't access them from the laptop. I could previously. I don't have Windows Firewall enabled on the desktop PC. I run AVG Free Ver 8 on the PC but as far as I can tell there are no firewall settings for it. Workgroup name is the same for all computers on the network. Laptop runs Vista, PC runs XP Pro SP3. Not that this should make any difference. Laptop can access the other desktop PC's resources which runs XP Pro. Any ideas on where to start looking appreciated. Thanks.
