    Prior to installing SP2 whenever I wanted to communicate with my desktop computer on a LAN I would just click on Network in Windows Explorer and both my laptop and desktop would appear. Since the install of SP2 I now get:
    - Entire Network which when clicked on gives:
    - Microsoft Terminal Services
    - Microsoft Windows Network which when clicked on gives:
    - Workgroup which when clicked on gives:
    My Laptop (only)
    - Netware or Compatible Network
    - Web Client Network

    If I go to Start > Search > Find People and then enter my My Desktop it does find the computer...eventually!

    Why can't I access it from Explorer anymore and what do I need to do to get the local network to appear as it used to please?
