Unable to browse the network ... DELETED

I have solved by myself manually deleting some *.386 files in the windows\system and reinstalling the protocols
But I dont'k know how to close / delete the question...

The old question:
I have 2 PC.
One is my, and I know that his lan setting is all ok.
The other is the PC with the problem.

The lan protocol is TCP/IP.
The two machine are and
The two subnetmask are setted to
The cable is ok: I have tried both a crossover cable and a direct cable with an hub with the same results.

Ping to is ok
Ping from to is ok
Ping from to is ok
From my pc to the other, I can see the disk, read the files ecc....

On the other PC, trying to browse the network I get "Unable to browse the network.
Windows is unable to gain access to the network."
This PC does not see the lan and does not see himself.

Removing all the protocols, restarting and reinstalling does not solve the problem.

Thinkting to a stange malfuntioning lan card, I have changed it but this does not solve the problem.

Now I have a doubt: I have found on the disk a partial remove of a norton product (an antivirus? a firewall? ... I dont'know)...
Maybe that there are strange settings not removed?
Are there a system to totally delete all the lan protocols so reinstalling it can take a 'new and clean' set of settings?
