Windows 7 home premium 32 bit

Just an update for all others that my be having this problem.
Resuni, thanks for all the help however that fix did not solve my problem.

It took a few weeks but what finally fixed it was changing the registry settings as per link below (both links below point to the same answer).
windows 7 stops sharing files
System error 64 - the specified network name is no longer available

Below solution is taken from Aaron's answer on the second link above: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\size
Your choices for this registry key are 1,2 and 3.
1 = Minimize Memory Used
2 = Balance
3 = Maximize Throughput for File Sharing and Maximize Throughput for Network Applications

Be sure to set this to (3). By default it is configured to 1.

I applied this change 1 week ago and have not had a problems since, prior to that it was happening several times a day.
Thanks for all the help.
