Every computer can access each other back and forth just not the windows 7 to this one XP.. and like i said it was working for years and nothign changed so this is why i am lost with this...

Just so you know i also tried ....
removing all the shares from the xp, deleting the network, reinstalling the network drivers, resharing the xp drives, disableing all antivirus, i have no firewalls, added a new user account and tried that, scanned for viruses...

I can ping the machines no problem but cannot access the xp at all
You did what I would advice you. As a last resort try "system restore" to a date prior to problems (on winxp)

Trying to goto a different restore point.. I tried to go to saturday which it was working fine, but it says it could not becuase no changes had been made..

So if no changes had been made, then how does this happen?? lol

There should be differences all the time!!! Even opening a file in WORD changes the registry (last opened document).

I don't know what the problem is
