    I have three computers in a LAN and the main computer does not allow access to it's files. Matter of fact it does not show up on the network display on the two remote computers. Those computers can access the internet through the modem on the mail computer and can access each other.

    I have checked everything that I can think of with no luck. The file sharing is checked and I have removed it, restarted and reinstalled with no change. Everything I can think up is normal and checkes with the records of settings I have made.

    The main computer is a HB 1.6 Ghz. intel P4 running Windows 98SE.

    I think that something is corrupted in the control panel/network and I am not sure how to correct it. That is only my idea and I would not at this point in time bet that it is even close to the fact.

    All help will be appreciated.

    I found the answer but have no idea what caused it. The drives that had been marked shared lost that marking. When I again marked them shared all worked fine though the had under the drive is no longer there.
