Thats crazy, I've never had that happen...

I know that most people do't have one in their own house but i just turned on Homegroup... sharing just with the server.... just one central location. Makes it easier for me to do that.

How do you have yor system in yoru house/

The two networks show up here in your screen shot lower left side of the picture. It shows dual livingroom and dual steve that means that you inadvertently created a second network.

Maybe try leaving the Homegroup again or something because this is probably creating a conflict with Windows.

after a reboot, the dual networks are gone.

I still get the permissions error on both systems. Also, on Windows XP, I have to run the network setup wizard every time I reboot; After I run it and click a few buttons, it sees everything and shares everything (though I still can't access the lion's share of it from the Win7 machine).

This is so frusturating. I wish I had 2 licenses of Win7 and could just use homegroup because that worked flawlessly when I was using the beta editions on both systems.

if you wold like to do remote desktop and i can check your configuration one by one with you. i'll be more than happy to do that for you....

Remote doesn't mean full access to your computer...
just means the desktop unless you allow me full.

but at least i can see what your doing and whats on screen... going on three pages now and i see your going no where so i am just offering some tech support one step higher
