What happened, churin? Did roadrunner ever help you solve it?
I've had your problem for years and solved it irregularly by installing KB 922120 V6. Not reliable, though.

W7 Ult x64 and W8 Pro x64

Thanks for your reply. But it was three years ago and I do not remember how it was resolved or if it was ever solved. I am no longer using XP. I reviewed the thread and Roadrunner was supposed to make follow-up post in response to my latest post but he never did.

What I remember about the incidence is that the particular W7 machine among multiple W7 machines was Apple Macbook Air. The W7 was installed on the Macbook Air using the BootCamp utility from Apple. This might be something to do with this problem since the XP machine did not have this problem with any other ordinary W7 machine in the network. Since then I have added W8 machine and the W7 machine using Macbook Air stayed unchanged in the network, and still no problem. The XP for some reason did not like W7 on Macbook Air.
