This problem does not occur on every computer.  I'm running NT40 with Win95
clients.  I had the students change their workgroup names a few days ago
and now when students attempt to share (user-level) folders the error:
"You cannot view the list of users at this time.  Please try again later."
appears.  However, the admin workgroup hasn't changed and it still shares
fine.  So, I tried changing the workgroups of the students back but it
still doesn't work.  PLEASE ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!!????

You need to reinstall the network option in 95
First uninstall the network from 95
Second reinstall the network in the domain you need.
The problem is that the user accounts have an ID generated during the network install in your domain.
Try this

Good Luck

Do you mean uninstall the NIC card too?  Or just reinstall the Access to domain option?  Or are you asking me to reinstall all protocols, services, etc. too?

thanks!

Uninstall the NIC too and then reinstall the complete network option. I think thats the better way to go.

HI Again,
Once again I'm having the same problem as above.  Only this time removing the card doesn't fix it.  He can do everything else on the machine (all networking, incl. TCP/IP) but cannot share.  It says "You cannot view the list of users at this time.  Please try again later."  The card works perfectly otherwise???
Thanks.
