I have been using a windows xp sp3 computer (HP).  I was able to access network folders until yesterday.  I was testing a .net program and got an error.  Since that error, I cannot open any network folder.  I also cannot map any network folder.  I keeps saying "The network path was not found".  

I did a google search and tried a Microsoft KB fix by editing a registry setting from 1 to 0 for  CscEnabled in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MRxSmb\Parameters.  

I have never has this problem before.  Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
