    My husband's computer and mine are networked by an Ethernet wire to a router. We had access to each other's computers until yesterday when I suddenly started getting the following msg.

    \\Carl\folder is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    folder being whatever folder I am trying to access.

    My computer can still be accessed from his, but I can't access his from mine. I have checked Zone Alarm on both computers and both computers have permission to access each other.

    Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

    Thanks
    Peg

    Do you each have the same user accounts and passwords on each computer?

    If you are always getting Access Denied errors when trying to connect to a XP computer,
    and you know you have the correct user names and passwords on the computer,
    the solution may be a simple registry edit.

    1. Start Regedit
    2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / CurrentControlSet / Control / Lsa
    3. Change the value of a key called "restrictanonymous" to 0 instead of 1
    4. Don't change "restrictanonymoussam" value.
    5. Reboot
