Hi all,

When viewing a workgroup in XP, it has this annoying way of displaying the computers under the Name column: (the comments column only displays the computer description)

computer_description (computer_name)

which makes it impossible to sort the list based on computer name.

According to microsoft kb article 330193, this is a known issue that was addressed in SP2. My machine came with SP2 but I still have the problem.

any ideas???

thanks
