I get this error everytime I click on PC A from PC B. I can access PC B from A.
I have a wifi network with 2 PCs running XP home SP2. Both are logged in as admins with passwords.

Simular problem with mine turned out to be firewall settings

WrathMaster2 you haven't ticked this thread as 'resolved' so here's something that worked for me:

On the PC that is being denied the access go to "My Network Places" and then click "Add a network place".

Then type in the location of the shared folder you want to access on the other PC. (In my case, that was \\laptop\my documents - where "laptop" was the computer name I was trying to access and "my documents" was the shared folder).

After I did this, I was able to see that shared folder on my laptop from my PC (in "My Network Places"), although when I clicked on 'laptop' from "View Workgroup Computers" it still told me "\\laptop is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource ....."

Then I had to follow that same procedure for
all my shared folders and everything was fine.
