Network problems?? HUGE FIND!
I was about to blow my brains out looking for a solution to my networking problems when a co-worker of mine found a solution. When ever I tried to map a windows 7 drive from my XP rig and entered my user name and password it simply changed the user to %computername%\user name and did nothing.......Anyone else having this issue, give this a try...it worked for me instantly
Forgive me for simplifying the instructions...Im sure there are those not familiar with the registry.
Click "start" and type "regedit" \ enter
When the registry editor is active, navigate to the following:
right click in the right pane and select new, 32bit D-word
name it "LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy"
double click it and change the value to "1"
click ok, close the registry editor and reboot...hopefully your woes are gone!!

Here is another one of those registry fixes that nobody should have to mess with just to get networking or homegroup to work properly.
I found a reference in the MS knowledge base.
You won't believe this.
You have to set the disabled items registry key to 0
But..... if it hasn't got one ( mine didn't) you have to create one first and then set it to zero!!!!!!
Or in Microsoft speak - if nothing is disabled everything is disabled unless you tell it that nothing is disabled.
In technical terms;
Then you have to set the DisabledComponents Dword to 0
And if there isn't a disabled components dword you have to create one and then set it to zero.
Hey everyone! I was having the same problem but I found a solution. Apparently, not sure why, but Windows did not change the settings in the registry after enabling IPv6. I found a solution over here.
For anyone else having this problem:
1. Click Start. Search for run and press enter. In the field, type regedit and press OK.
2. In the registry, navigate to the following key.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters]3. In the right pane, right-click on “DisabledComponents” and select modify. In the value data field, type “0″ (without quotations) and press OK. If the value was set to ``FF``, it was turned off.
4. Reboot your computer and it should work. It did for me.
