I have two XP Pro machines, A and B, peer-to-peer in workgroup "workgroup".  File-sharing is enabled in both, simple file-sharing is not enabled on either.  A has had for some time two shared folders, ProSystem and RentRoll, which B accesses without problem.  

Today I installed QuickBooks Pro multiuser version on A in folder C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro, and attempted to share out this folder giving full control access to Everyone.  When I try to access this folder from B, I get the message "access denied".  

I can ping A from B with no problem, and can still access the ProSystem and RentRoll folders on A from B.

User Pete (no password) has admin rights on A;  user Karen (no password) has admin rights on B.

Suggestions?

Right click on the permission for the C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro folder on computer A. Check permissions and give 'everyone' full control. Then on security tab, again make sure 'everyone' is listed and give full control. This should fix any permissions issues.

If still having trouble, then it's time to turn off ALL firewalls, disable norton and any antivirus programs (I've seen norton interfere WAY more than it should)

Typo. Right click on the folder and choose properties for the C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro folder on computer A.

Sounds like you've granted Everyone access to the share, but not to the folder itself. Right click on the folder in Windows Explorer, select Properties, then Security. Click the Advanced tab and deselect the "Inherit from Parent..." option. Click Remove when prompted whether to discard the existing permissions. Then, add Everyone to your security access list and grant them full access. Providing you have also granted full access to the share itself, you should be in business.
