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.

If it's Windows xp, have a look here click here

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.
