From another list:
Turn off Simple File Sharing
Take ownership of the folder(s) in question (right click folder > Sharing &
security > > Advanced > Owner > 'Change owner to... <current user name> >
tick 'replace owner on subcontainers and objects)
And bingo!

  Hi Group,

  I restored my host computer and now I cannot get to folders in "My Network
Places" although I can see them from both computers.   The error message is
\\Downstairs is not accessible.   You might not have permission to use this
network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions.  The network path was not found."   This error
message is on both computers.   The host computer is a Windows XP Home
operating system and the second computer is a Windows XP Professional
operating system.

  I am the administrator and I rebooted both computers and log in as the
administrator.   Any suggestions?
