Cannot access shared folder.

Just reinstalled XP on one of my desktops after finally giving up on Vista and are having problems accessing any shared folders.
This is the error message I am getting:[IMG]click here[/IMG]

I have Googled and tried various suggestions,checked firewall,workgroup,netbios,pinter/file sharing and a couple of other things but no luck.

The odd thing is I also have a piece of software from PureNetworks (cisco) which usually takes all the hard work out of networking my PC's but cannot share through that either. I can access other PC's on the network it is just the newly shared.
