In that thread you wrote.

I had a similar problem, and I think what I did was set the

restrictanonymous

key in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

to 0.

I also made sure that the two computers used the same workgroup, and logged in using the same user name and password in both.
I already tried this.. it's one of the solutions I came across over the last month. My two machines were both already set to this value.. but thanks.. and yes, both are workgroup in all capitol letters.

Let me know if you also have the same user name and password for both machines.

I've stopped using the other machine (a notebook with XP) but I'll connect it to the network later and see what happens.

Can you run the following on each machine?

What is Windows Defender Offline?
I'll have to run these after we go to bed tonight. On my 200 gig hard drive I already ran an hour of it and it didn't get very far. On her 1 TB drive, this will take more than 8 hours for a full scan.. I may just have to do a quick scan on hers which will also take several hours. I can't tie up her pc during the time she's home from work so this will be hard to do.

Before i stopped my scan, it said it found some problems, but it doesn't give a full path to the troubled files. Is there a way i can view the full path? I have to be able to do that, or else i can't use defender offline. I keep some trusted malware on my system that is harmless - I know what these files do and dont do. I don't need defender offline deleting these.

I don't remember what we used before if anything.. I think I instructed these to connect without passwords, or to auto remember them.

Yeah, I understand. You should get the option to remove, quarantine, or ignore each threat. If I remember correctly you should be able to see the full path/file. I don't ever let antimalware apps delete stuff automatically either; I verify what gets deleted first.

Thanks.. I'll take another look when I run it again tonight.
