Wait for timeout.
CTRL-ALT-DEL and select Non-responsive program and select 'End Program'


To start with:

What OS are you running and what service pack.
What is the exact error message.

Well, I have a pretty simple network so, when I try to open a shared file in computer B from the other one (A) I can see the folder and everything but it wont open. So, what I did was to transfer a folder from B to A and it went through, so it seems to be working fine just one way, it's crazy. It was fine with Vista yesterday (I'm testing it) but It was kinda slow so I deployed XP SP2 back using Ghost and this shared folder wont open when I click on it and then I get the message of Windows Explorer

The error is - "Permissions are set to everyone, administrators and authenticated users"?

Anything in the event logs?

If you installed Vista then tried to go back to XP PRO, that will NOT work.  Microsoft says that, once you install VISTA, it is a one way street.  You cannot go back to XP.  You have to format the drive completely and reinstall XP from either the CD or a ghost-type backup.  One of the things that fails first is networking, which is exactly what you are experiencing.  A reinstall of XP to a clean drive is needed.

The only thing I can thinl of is you may have gotten a bad ghost image deployed even though is said it was successful.  Another possibility, when you deploy your image is it the same image you gave on another machine.  Didi you do a sysprep before creating the image?  If not, did you do a newsid when you deployed it?

Ok rickhobbs, I'm going to give you all the points even when I was waiting for your answer and I decided to make a clean installation like you said. I agree with you, I think the image went bad somehow (ocurred at school one time) And I didn't do a sysprep. Then I made a new image again and I deployed it back and it worked perfectly.

How can I give you the points?

Thanks.

Julio.

You should have choices above the area where you enter comments.  One should be to Split Points.  Select it.  Choose the comment you want as accepted answer and assign 100% of the points to it.
