Windows 7: Network sharing issue. \\computer is not accessable.

26 Nov 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Network sharing issue. \\computer is not accessable.


I am receiving an error when trying to access a network resource however I am able to access the computer from another system.

The full network error is:

\\computer is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions,

The specified network provider name is invalid.

I am using a desktop and a laptop from the laptop I can access both the desktops network sharing and the laptops network sharing however from the desktop I am unable to access either the desktops network sharing or the laptops network sharing. Both are using windows 7

Any suggestions?
