    I have four systems; three are win7 and one is win2k. All of the win7 systems can see each other fine and all systems are in the same workgroup. Win2k has a shared drive and folders with permissions set to "Everyone"

    I have put this key into the registry on my win7 system
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters DhcpNodeType value set to 1

    I can always ping the win2k machine from a cmd prompt and get a good response. I can sometimes access the shared items however other times a get a box asking for a user/password. When I input what I know to be the pw, it says bad user name pw.

    Here is what really perplexes me. When I logoff of the win7 machine and log right back on, I can access the win2k machine without any problem. This lasts for a while and then reverts to the login problem.

    One other item. When I logoff of the win7 machine then log back in, the view of the win2k share is changed from "List" to tiles. I can change it back without problems however the next time I do this, it is back to tiles.
