Lost Share Folder Access

After running all the most current Windows 7 updates, my Windows 7 laptop using Wi-Fi can no longer communicate with shared folders on my desktop XP PC thatís hardwired to my Netgear G router. My XP desktop can still access the folders on the Windows 7 laptop. Both PCís can access the web. If I run System Restore to an older date everything work just fine.

I would, in that case, re-install the updates one by one, and determine which update it is that's causing the error. Tedious, I know, but it'll help us figure out how to help you with it.

The fix was simpler than I expected. I un-shared the XP desktop PC folder. I then re-shared it. Then I rebooted the Windows 7 laptop. Now the laptop can see the XP shared folder. Thanks for the help.
