My Network Places are invisible, but still available
Posted on 2007-10-02
Prelude: I use a dutch version of WIndows XP Pro. This means I'll have to translate certain menu options. I suppose the exact English translation might differ from my translation, but I hope you can understand what I mean.
My XP Pro workstation is a member of WIndows 2003 Domain.
When I start the windows explorer and navigate to 'My Network Places', I can see the option "Microsoft Windows Network". After clicking on the little +-sign on the left I can see the name of our Domain. There is again a +-sign to the left of this name. Clicking on this + has no results. This behavior is new; a few weeks ago I could still navigate our domain by clicking on the +-sign.
All shared folders are still available. When I type \\Server name\Shared folder in the 'Adress space' all shared folders on our server show up.
How can I re-enable the folding/unfolding the names of the server and workstations on our domain again?
