None of your share names have embedded spaces right?

Do you mean Shares that have a SPACE in the name "MyShare" or "My Share" ?

Yes. That will kill the XP network browser dead.

Well I have had these Shares working with XP for about a year now (Until Win7 SP1), and have had XP to XP shares with Spaces in for over 5 years. So I can't see how that is possible. Are you sure your not thinking about 2000 or NT4?

I have removed any shares on the system with Spaces in but that didn't Fix the issue.

Update: I now have an error on the Windows XP box.

"WorkGroup is not accessible, The Semaphore timeout period has expired"


**Update

If the Administrator password is changed so it is not the same as the Windows 7 PC, the PC will Prompt for Authentication pause for 30sec and then display the Root of the UNC Path.

I can only establish this to be some extra security in SP1
