    I have a win 98SE os and a win2000 OS connected by my router. I use to be able to access each computer's drives by going through Network neighborhood (win98) and my network places (win 2K) but I no longer can on either machine. The only thing I changed was putting Zone Alarm on win98 and Claimwin (win2k) antivirus programs on each machine. Would these software programs prevent me from accessing each computer? If so, what do I need to do to have access. Any help is appreciative.

    yes, that is the problem. quoted from www.chicagotech.net.

    Zone Alarm may disable file sharing
    You setup a peer-to-peer network correctly but no one can see one of the networking computers and the computer can't see others. Later you find that Installing ZA prevents file sharing because Zone Alarm will consider all other machines on the network as untrusted and will not allow them to communicate with the machine ZA is installed on. Resolution: 1) Disabling Zone Alarm. 2) To fix this, in the firewall section "ZONE" tab use the ADD button to specify which Ip's or range of ip's are local, it would also be a good idea to specify which NIC is local on a multi-homed machine.
    To do that, go to Security >> Advance button and select the "local zone contents" tab then click Add and specify which ip or range of ip are local also specify local interface on multi-homed machine.

    Bob, I am using ZA free edition . I don't see "ZONE" tab or Security >> Advance button. Where would they be located?
