Cisco VPN, Cant ping addreses but can browse a mapped drive? HELP!!!!

I have two laptops my sony logs into the VPN just fine and can ping our server and telnet my Unix box, My toshiba however with the same settings will not let me ping anything although it logs on just fine and hands off the correct ip address, however I can browse a mapped network drive to the 2003 server, put I can't ping it.  I have never seen anything like this?  I did install XP SP2 on the toshiba laptop, then I uninstalled it to see if that was causing my problem, it did not change.

Did it work before SP2? If you install any firewall (including SP2) and then uninstall it, remnants remain.
Try re-installing SP2 and then go in and enable icmp..

I would bet that the Toshiba has some type of personal firewall that does not allow icmp, but allows netbios neighborhood and just about everything else..

It has worked in the past? So I think it is a setting?

If you can map drives, but still can't ping it then there is some other firewall software running.
As long as you can map the drives, does it really matter that you can't ping it?
