Windows XP - Shared Folder No Longer Accessible

Client: Windows XP SP 3
Domain: Windows Server 2008 R2 DC

Client machine had a shared folder that could be accessed until here lately.  No change was made to the shared folder name or the user with permission to access the folder.  I can access other shares on the network without error.  

Machine can be pinged by IP address or by name.  Pinging by name resolves correctly.

Error that I run into when trying to view the share is:
System Error 67: The network name cannot be found

I logged into the client machine as an administrator and created a temporary folder.  I shared the folder, giving "Everyone" change permission on the share and read/list contents access for NTFS.  I logged into another machine and attempted to view the shared folder, but I was unable to.  The error message is:

I turned the firewall off on the client machine and I was still unable to view either shared folder (the temporary one I created or the one I am trying to access).

I ran ipconfig /registerdns and tried to access the shared folders again - no luck.

Any ideas?

Try repairing the TCP/IP Stack.

Look in the Windows XP Hosts file to make sure it has not been infested with entries from viruses.

Also, since you tried two machines, please restart your Server at a convenient point. That may also help.
