I never used it that way. Always used "Network" never had issues until 1 week ago.
All other computers still use "Network" feature?

Still no joy.
Most likely the time problem did fix at least one problem and the remaining problem was probably caused by Norton.

Use the Norton uninstall utility to remove all traces of Norton then see if you can access those files again.

You may want to run the sfc/scannow command to see if there are any missing system files.

Just to follow up.
As suggested I went ahead and downloaded Norton Removal Tool
After scan I did restart made sure windows firewall wasn't turned on and voila now I'm able to access the computer using "Network" feature!!!

It never thought this could be a issue.
I've spent countless hours searching the web and trying different suggestions.
Thank you to all!

Just about every third party A/V is capable of creating these problems for you.

I've seen this many times before so I was pretty sure the uninstall tool would be required and I'm glad it worked for you.

I was hesitant to install 360 again but I pulled the trigger and it still works! So, it was probably a glitch.

What happens is that once you have your home network set up then Norton see's it and creates rules to allow it all to work right.

The problems start when you create a home network while Norton is installed as the rules creation isn't automatic.

You can usually go into the firewall settings and allow for your home network to function as it should but you need to know which settings to access for this.

Hoping for followup on this...

I have the same situation and "Windows cannot access...," "You do not have permission..." error messages. I'm not using Homegroup either, and I believe this is traces of a former antivirus, but I've never had Norton. I had AVG antivirus before, and just tried their uninstaller, but I still have the error. I've also tried disabling Windows Firewall for a few minutes to see if I can get access, and still no go.

I see Chev65 left sevenforums.com. Does any one else know what "firewall settings and allow for your home network to function as it should but you need to know which settings to access for this." settings he wrote about?

My reply might not help you but I found also that ipv6 has something to do with that.
Try to ping from computer A to B and from B to A, do you get replies from ipv4 address?
I had to uncheck ipv6 from LAN properties in order to get it to work because on one of the computers I was getting replies from ipv6.
