Sharing between windows 7 pc and xp

Hey, so got a problem, in our office we have a windows 7 pc sharing some folders over our domain, now other windows 7 pcs have no problem getting into the shares, and most of the time the xp machines can get in too but every now and again the xp machines cant get into the windows 7 sharing pc it can see the name but says doesnt have permissions etc we have to restart the windows 7 pc in order for it to work again, now the permissions are fine there set to everyone and its not the firewall turned it off etc, also in the sharing centre the settings all seem to be correct. The shared printer also on the windows 7 pc doesnt work when you cant access the files other windows 7 pcs can use it but not xp pcs.

Hope you can help
