    Our office has 4 computers set up with Windows 7. One computer has a bunch of shared files and acts like a file server. The other two computer can connect to the \\fileserver okay. No problems at all. I can not. I have tried IP address, name, going through work arounds, turning off firewalls, anti-virus, etc. But when I go to it I get the "You do not have permission to access \\fileserver. Contact your network administrator to request access.

    Nobody else has an account set up on any machine, so i fear adding mine to the other three.

    Any help on how to fix this problem.

    And to add some randomness to this, I restarted after applying a windows update and everything worked right after bootup. Though this has been giving me problems on and off for the past week, so any help would be appreciated.
