(Apologies if this question has already been posted and answered. I looked but didn't find it...)

I used to have a home network of two XP machines, but I recently replaced one of them with a Win/7 machine. Since then I have had permissions problems whenever I try to read data from one machine to the other. I have followed all the steps I could find: I made all the files on the Win/7 shareable ("Everyone"), I created a working group with a common name, I renamed the accounts and passwords so they would be the same on both computers, I even enabled NetBios over TCP/IP on the XP. But the problem remains: each computer can see the other, but when I try to open the high-level folders I get a "permission denied" response.

Any suggestions about what else I need to do to get it working properly?

Thanks!

Network and Sharing Center - is your network designated "Home"? If so, click on Change advanced sharing settings - Home or Work - please tell us your selections for the various (I think 7) choices.
