Can't open A MSAcess file over a simple dedicated network

I have three computers networked together as a small dedicated LAN using ip/Cat5. Each pc, running WinXP Pro, must access a MS Access mbd file which resides on one of the pc's.

I can only open the mbd file on the pc which it resides on.  When trying to access it from any of the other pc's, I get the message "The file is located outside your internet or on an untrusted site. MS Access will not open the file due to potential security problems. To open the file, copy it to your machine or an accessable network location."

My ip assignment is 10.0.1.0 thru 10.0.1.3.

Thank you

To work around this behavior, each user must add *.domain.com or the appropriate IP address range to the Local Intranet Sites dialog box:
In Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
On the Security tab, click Local intranet, and then click Sites.
Click Advanced, and then type: *.domain.com or an IP address range (for example, 157.54.100-200.*) in the Add this Web site to the zone box, where domain.com is your company and top-level domain names.
Click Add, click OK, click OK, and then click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Restart the computer.

Thanks HainKurt,
It worked on two of the pc's. It didn't work on my laptop. It's my Delphi development system which I'm writting my app with.
I configured the LAN port with the proper static ip. The only difference with the laptop pc's is that it's a fully loaded machine with a ton of applications on it and Kaspersky Internet Security software running. I disabled Kaspersky. No luck.
Is there another way that might work on the laptop?
Thanks
