Somewhat of a long story, but I'll try and give you the condensed version.
I have a Windows Vista Ultimate desktop machine and a Windows Vista Business
laptop, as well as a Windows XP Laptop.
What has started happening is this -- after a few days of the Vista
Ultimate Desktop being online, it will start refusing connections from both
the XP and Vista laptops, claiming "No more connections can be made to this
remote computer at this time". At this point, I can RDP into the machine (or
walk into the other room) and open up the Computer Management MMC and then
open the Network Shares and expand Sessions and see that my Vista Laptop has
11 open sessions with the machine, with open files ranging from 0 to 3 to
-2059964384. If I right-click on the session and say 'Close Session', I get
an error saying Windows is unable to terminate the session because: "Error 2:
The system cannot find the file specified.".
I've troubleshot this forever! I have no idea. I'm very curious as to
why only my Vista Business laptop seems to be spawning these rogue sessions
that cannot be closed, and not my Windows XP SP2 laptop (or my S.O.'s Windows
XP SP2 laptop either, for that matter).
The desktop connects to my router via a cable, and my laptops connect to
the same router via wireless. This used to work with no problems when both
Vista machines were running XP, and since the hardware hasn't changed since
then, I'm thinking it's Vista related.
Any help would be appreciated
