    Can anyone help me out there? When I try to access a shared folder on my network I get the following error message: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

    I've made sure all the computers on the network have the same workgroup name, all accounts are computer administrator's and restarted all cpu's. That's all I've done and know how to do so far.

    From a JohnWill post:

    Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

    If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

    Download the following and install it

    Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

    after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

    Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

    net user guest /active:yes
    ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
    ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

    The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

    that seems to be the solution out there, but that only works for a day and then it goes back to the same error. Which I also found reported by many others on the web. I read that a virus might be causing that so I'll clean my cpu and cross my fingers. thanks,
