Strange networking issues with Vista & XP

by cqi / February 22, 2007 5:31 PM PST

I recently connected my new vista laptop to my xp network (workgroup). Have no problems seeing the network copying files etc, BUT i cannot rename or create files via Windows explorer on any remote machine. Returns error message that the folder does not exist or has been moved??? It's there, i can see it, i'm IN it!!

Also cannot save Autocad files to network drives and cannot print from SOME programs like word but firefox works fine.

Any ideas would really be appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
