Windows 7 to Windows 2000 Server Login Issue

Hi,

I have a box I use for development and its running W2K Server on my local network. I am running Win 7 Home Premium locally. This morning I was able to access shares on the W2K Server, now I can not.

The only changes I made

Installed Terminal Server in Remote Management mode
Turned off the UAC locally (Windows 7)
Installed the registry key EnableLinkedConnections = (dword) 1 fix

On the Windows 2K server (both of which I have rebooted serveral times), the event viewer is saying that the user is bad or the password is bad, but I can log in using the same user/password through the Terminal Server. I was sure to have the caps lock off. I even installed a four letter username with a four number password to try that (just to be sure I wasnt typing something wrong).

A word of mention...

Just before all this took place, the Win 7 machine started telling me I could not save files to my C drive, and then kept asking me for Administrative permissions after I rebooted.

I sure hope someone has a fix for this! I also I am weary of urls pointing to sites I have never heard of to find a solution, so if this a good one, please post to the comments here!

Thanks

I normally log in using the Administrator account. I just used Guest because I was trying another user. Also tried several other accounts as well.

I just verified from another computer running XP on the same network, that the server is accessible

Check to make sure that the date and time on the server and client are within 5 minutes of each other

Wow, wow, wow, and WOW! I have to file that away in my mental locker! I did not know the SMB protocol was that sensitive.

Thanks so much!
