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?

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.
