windows 7 professional 32 bit
can't connect to a pc on the same work network

Each time i try to connect to a pc on my work network , a message is displayed "You dont have permission to access \\DINA-PC. contact your network administrator to request access".

1- i can access all other pc's on the same network
2- other pc's on the same network can access \\DINA-pc
3- Both DINA-PC and mine are allowing network discovery and file sharing and password protected sharing is off.
4- \\DINA-PC can access my pc

i can't figure out the problem and how to solve it , will appreciate if anyone can help me on this issue.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

From Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Firewall\Allowed Programs, allow File and Printer sharing.

You should try the following: Click on the Start and type \\DINA-PC\SharedFolderName or SharedDrive (ex. \\DINA-PC\C) also the Computer Name (DINA-PC) can be replaced by \\IPAddress\SharedFolderName or SharedDrive (ex. \\\C)
