workgroup computers

Hi can anyone help I have 2 pc's xp pro connected to a router and cable modem ntl.
everything has been fine for about a year, now when I go into (workgroup computers) it shows both pc's on my 2 computers. but on one computer one of the pc's shown when clicked says not accessable you may not have rights ect.The file sharing works and I can see both computers. but the pc in question seems to take longer to load zone alarm at boot up. How do i clear the workgroup and start again ? Thanks Chippy

Just give it a different workgroup name, right-click My Computer, Properties, Computer Name Tab and 'change name'.

Once one PC is renamed repeat it for the other one. Then file sharing, etc.

Don't quote me but I think they disappear (are deleted) at the next boot.
