Fist of all turn off both firewalls and reboot each computer. Disable any firewall within the router. On either machine run the Network setup wizard from control panel. Then make sure that there is at least one document in each computers "shared folder". This should get the basics running but post back with any problems.

Make sure that the XP Pro machine is set to simple file sharing. Whereas the Home machine will be I believe this is not the case by default with the Pro machine. click here

If all works we need to turn on each firewall individually and fix any issues as we go along.

Don't know if this Microsoft page relating to the error, when particular AntiVirus programs are installed, is relevant? The suggested solution does involve editing the registry and, if you are comfortable doing that, it might be worth making the change regardless of the AntiVirus implication.

Now you need to turn the firewalls back on one at a time and put each computer back in the "trusted zones as you go. (mgmcc - where are you? I need one of your standard scripts!)
