Hi Martha,

I did turn off simple file sharing.
I do not have an "advanced" tab when I right click a folder and click on 
Sharing & Security and and I have no place to "replace owner" on subcontainers 
and objects.  I ran Network Wizard and still cannot access my other 
folder/computer, even though I can see the folder.  I get an error message that 
the folder is not accessible.   You might not have permission to use this 
network resource".

  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?
