I have a client that is running quickbooks pos on 2 machines. One is downstairs at the cash register and one is up in the office. The one at the cash register is working fine. The one upstairs runs fine except for quickbooks pos. When i start qb it says it cant find the server for pos. The networking between the two computers is working fine. I can browse each computer from the other just fine and access all the files. I even enter the name of the pos server and it still cant access the files. I am thinking it may have a virus but want other opinions.

When you say you are able to browse each computer from the other it seems there is connection between the machines :)
instead of name of POS server why dont you try with IP address
