    I have 4 PCs networked using the MS Windows Network. I have one bad actor PC call it "PatrickSilver". When I try to access folder from another PC, I get
    \\PatrickSilver\My Documents is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Access is denied

    I am the system admin for my home network ... I can access all other PCs from PatrickSilver ... I just can't grant access to the files on "PatrickSilver" ... My main PC is running XP Professional ... PatrickSilver is running Win 2000 professional

    Of course, I can see the PatrickSilver is on the network ... just can't get access.

    Help!!!

    Of course, I have set up all 4 PCs ... so I thought the same way ... I'm stumped :(
