    Do you guys have any idea what's causing this?

    I have a work system that has two PCs, one XP, one Win 7, and they had a shared folder on the Win 7 machine that suddenly stopped working. I can ping back and forth between the PCs, and another piece of hardware is communicating normally between the two, but the shared folder isn't working, nor can I see each PC from the other (in Networks, the other PC is listed by name as always, but says "folder not found" if I click on it.

    Neither PC has received any updates or anything, it just suddenly stopped working a week ago.
