duplicate name exists on the network

environment:  a simple XP workgroup network that is peer-to-peer (no server or domain)

problem:  after removing Norton Internet Security (to resolve other problems), the message "duplicate name exists on the network" occurs and the machine is invisible to the rest of the network and has no access to network resources.  no other machines with the same name.  changed the name a couple of times anyway with the same result.  have heard that this may be due to Symantec's messing with the registry value for "IRPStackSize".  true?  it's an eight hour drive for me to just test it.

thanks.
