Suddenly unaable to access network shares

Posted on 2010-11-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Out of no where, I am not able to access my LAN shares on the server. On my XP Pro workstation, My Computer indicates the mapped drives (server shares) are Type: Disconnected Network Drive. Double clicking on the drive results in a 'drive:\ refers to a location that is unavailable...' error popup. Attempts to create new mappings to known server shares are unsuccessful.

This is the only workstation of many similar workstations having this problem. I have run Mailwarebytes, Norton (which I since uninstalled), Tune-up, amd Microsoft Security Essentials to no avail.

Please help. Here is the Hijackthis log:
