I have a Windows Server 2003 with a shared directory for payroll. I have permissions on it allowing on the payroll lady to access it. The payroll program on her computer runs directly from the share. I have had the server since like September of 2008. Within the last couple months, she will lose access to the share. I try to get to the computer \\x.x.x.x from my computer and it just sits there and doesn't pull anything up. I have to restart the server for the share to be accessible. This is where it gets weird. When the share goes down, I can log onto the server, go to \\x.x.x.x (local ip) and it will not show the folders. When I restart, I can type the IP and it'll pull up the shared directory. Nothing has changed on the server except for Windows Updates. Sometimes it will go 3 weeks without messing up and other times, 3 days. When it borks out, I can restart the Computer Browser service and it does not correct the issue. When I try to stop the Server service, it never stops. The "Stopping" bar goes all the way across, disappears and the service status still says Stopping. The DNS servers are set to my ISP's DNS. They have been like this the whole time though and it just started screwing up. Any ideas?
