Powershell  Access is denied connecting to a remote computer

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
For some reason I can connect to all my win XP machines except one using powershell. I keeping getting the l 'Access is denied' error, even though the credentials are correct. Also the firewall is turned off. Could there be anything else blocking powershell?
