    Our office is set up with two windows 7 machines, and a single XP machine. I am on the XP machine. The printer and most shared files are on the windows 7 machine. This normally works fine, but randomly it will stop allowing me to access it, and won't fix itself until it has been rebooted. Nothing will change as far as we can tell. I can still ping it, and they can still access my computer. They can also access their computers. Know of where to start trouble shooting? It is currently un-connected, so items that don't require a reboot, and would thus fix it anyway are of a lower priority than things that can be tested without it.
