Do you have a Lenovo laptop? If so:
1. Click Start > All Programs >ThinkVantage > Access Connections.
2. Click Manage.
3. Click your network profile.
4. Click Edit.
5. Click Additional Settings.
6. Click the "Settings" button next to "Network security".
7. Un-check the "disable file and printer sharing" box.
If that doesn't help, see if your computer has a similar program that
manages network profiles or settings.
