    Can't see networked computer (XP Home SP2)

    All of a sudden I can't see the other computer in My Network Places. I can use the printer that's on the other computer, but I can't see the directory for the other machine's file system like I once could. The other machine still shows up in the Trusted list on my ZoneAlarm firewall. Both computers share a broadband connection.

    How do I get it back?

    Re: Can't see networked computer (XP Home SP2)

    Yeah, I've been asking myself the same question. The only thing that springs to mind is that I recently plugged in an external (USB) hard drive. I mentioned my problem to a techno-savvy friend today, and he said a recent Windows Update was the culprit. He said all I need to do is go to each computer and re-set the sharing. I'll try that over the week end.
