I, like him, am getting the same exact error message when any of my three other computers try to access my Acer computer on my home WORKGROUP. (you asked if it was doing this on Homegroup or Workgroup earlier to the other person, it is doing it on both.) I can get on the Acer and access any other computer on the network, but none of the others can access it. I checked the "TCP/IP NETBIOS Helper" as you asked of him and it is started on my Acer. Can you help?
Hello jencar124, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

This thread is six months old. If you like, I can have your post moved to a new thread where you can get help from many who are currently online and willing to offer help?

Also, it would help to know what OSs (XP, Vista, or 7) you have connected to your network and if there is a "Homegroup" setup or not. Homegroup is only compatible with Windows 7 computers, so if you have other computers connected to your home network they will not work well with HomeGroup.
