Hello,
      I'm having an odd issue with one of my laptops.  I've created a share on this laptop and given everyone read/write access (until it starts working).  When I try to access \\computername\sharename, the share shows up as a suggestion in the run box but I get an error message when I press enter to access the share.  The screen cap is below.  I'm not sure why that is the error returned as the laptop has 40 GB or of 250 used.  This is in a domain environment.
Please help!

You may need to play with the stack size number that you put into the registry entry.

That value did not exist.  Created the DWord w/ 15 - didn't work.  Increased value to 50, rebooted & it worked.
Thanks!
