Windows 7 RC can't access network resources

I have a user running Windows 7 RC on our corportae domain.  He has internet access  but is unabe to access any netowrk resources be it printers or folders.  I am also running Windows 7 RC on my machine and haven't had any of these issues.  It doesn't seem to matter what profile is logged into the machine.  I have tried removing and re-adding it to the domain.  The error message I get when trying to add a network folder is "More Data is Available"

Here a list of things to try;

1)When you removed the PC from the domain did you also rename it?  
2)Run a nslookup at the command prompt and compare it to yours to make sure that DNS is working properly.  
3)Set the IP address and DNS statically, make sure your just using one DNS server.  
4)Boot into safe mode with networking and see if that resolves the issue.  If that does resolve the issue then use MSconfig to remove the offending software/service from starting at start up.

If you need me to clarify any of that let me know.
Your share name might be too long can you try to shortern the name to see?
Please check the event log to see if more detailed error message is available.

Looks like it was some software called "Spyware Doctor" that the user had installed.  I uninstalled it and it worked fine.  Even disabling the anti-virus and firewall portion of the program didn't seem to fix it.  It had to be completely uninstalled.
