vista, not able to edit network resources

I am having some troubles with network shares on one specific machine.

I have a network share on a workgroup from a windows 7 computer,  I have a laptop that is not able to edit items on the drive, But can create/delete folders, new text items, etc.  Even items that the laptop would create, such as a folder then trying to rename would come up with:
the item does not exist or has been moved/deleted.  Any other computer with any OS will work

Also tested with a windows xp share that worked with any system as well. same result.

Tired several troubleshooting steps such as:
-obviously a restart
-reset tcp/ip stack and winsock
-disable ipv6
-recreated network mapping and made sure to use computername\user and the proper password
-tired navigating and editing while on map drive or server filepath

Thanks for the help

What type access you have there when you check the properties of the folders being shared. Are you giving full access to network users when you create the share?

I would also look and see if teh workoffline/windows sync fodlers are setup . They can do some funky stuff at times.
