problem is there are 4 computers on the network. One windows 98 2 xp pros and one xp home. All are PCS but 1 laptop. The laptop has xp pro. the only computer that is not working on the network is the laptop. It gets internet access but can't see anyone on network. the other computers can see the laptop but can't access it. I'm completely aware of what i'm doing with computers and all the settings are spitting image of the others. I have talked to friends and they've said the same thing. I've ran adaware and all that jazz and still no dice. My conclusions is that its a windows problem. Feel free to ask any other questions or offer any solutions.
