  1. Thank you! Suddenly my xp computer could no longer access my mapped drives on my vista computer. After hours of googling for a solution I came upon this web site. Your suggestion fixed the problem immediately. I have no idea how the Server service got turned off on the Vista computer but Start Service did the trick.

    • for addition, this is the symptoms of network infection. maybe your computer has been infected by virus. try to Install the patch from Microsoft that covers the vulnerability MS08-067
