    Hi, I have a home network of 5 computers. Two are running XP Pro SP3, one is XP Home SP 3, one is Win 2000 Pro SP4 and the other Win 98. When I try to copy files to one of the XP Pro machines from any of the other computers, I get the message "Error Copying File or Folder", "Cannot copy filename.ext: Access is denied. The source file may be in use". I get this error when I try to copy any file to the one XP Pro system using one of the other 4 computers. When I am using the one XP Pro system I can freely copy files to and from any other computer on the network. I do not have this problem with the other XP Pro system. All systems have Administrator access, there is no encryption being used, and sharing is enabled.

    Does anyone have any ideas about what may be causing this problem?
