master browser problem on XP home net

    I have a small XP SP2 home network with a router that worked fine for two
    years, but now my two computers cannot see each other (although they both
    see the internet fine). Using Net View I get system error 6118 on one
    computer; the other gives a normal response. Browstat sta produces the
    message that "browsing is not active on the domain" on the same computer
    with the 6118 problem. In my event log I have errors 8021 and 8032
    regarding the master browser. As a probably related issue, my Share
    documents folder on the problem box is only available from the Administrator
    account no matter how many times I set it to share.

    I have tried everything I could understand in MSKB article #135404 and a
    whole bunch of others to no avail. Uninstalled firewall (zonealarm),
    stopped and started the computer browsing service, the tcp/ip service, etc.

    I would appreciate any help. I am back to sneaker net.
