Network Shares

Can't access previously setup network shares.
I've had this network share setup between two Windows 7 machines for a while now. Today with no warning the network shares stopped. No password changes to the profile, no network changes, nothing that should have prompted the issue.
Everytime I access the share I get the same error message whether from the network name or the IP address. I've tried uninstalling AV. Turning on and off password protected file sharing and a few other things.

Have you restarted the server that the shares reside on to see if that fixes it?   There may be a failed service on the server preventing sharing.

Yes, when I uninstalled the AV the server was restarted.
