This may or not be the problem but it's worth looking.

Go to Start then Run, type Regedit and OK

Go down the hierarchy HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Lsa

entry restrictanonymous should have value 0 (zero) - if it has value 1 (one) that's probably your issue.

caveat...you will open that workstation's permissions by changing this value.


This may not be the exact same thing, but I had a problem similar to this. It was caused by the file sharing command. I had to take "ownership" of the folders and files in both the Administrator mode and in the Owner. Here is the Microsoft page with the information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810881
You need to do the commands in the Safe Mode (F8); sign on as Administrator.
Hope this helps...
