The issue does not exist everywhere nor does this problem show up all of the time. One of the errors that shows up is "Access is denied.......The User name could not be found." The owner of the company (the person whose computer has the problem) does not use the AD Published shares, but prefers to get to a share via My Network places > Entire Netowrk > Windows Network > Workgroup. The issue is that the computer (The VP of Operations) that is trying to be contacted does not always respond via its host name but it almost always responds to its IP address. I have done many searches on the net related to this issue.. I have tried every solution that I could find. Thank you for any help!- Hide quoted text -
