    Computer1: XP Pro desktop
    Computer2: XP Pro desktop
    Computer3: XP Pro laptop (that was just formatted, clean install)

    --

    For the past year the above computers have been networked from a
    netgear router. I have successfully had shared folders on each
    computer and given full write access to each of them.. I have
    copied/cut/pasted files/folders at will from each computer to another
    using shared folders with full access....

    just last week, I discovered that computer1 (when accessed via the
    network by computer2 or computer3) would behave as though there are
    permission problems.. I could not MOVE, CUT, or COPY a file FROM
    computer1 to computer2 or 3 if I was ON computer2 or 3....

    i could MOVE, CUT, or COPY the same file FROM computer1 if I was ON
    computer1 and dumping it into the shared folders on computer2 or 3..

    heres where it gets weird... I can be on computer2 or 3 and go into a
    shared folder on computer1 and CREATE a folder, CREATE a file, and edit
    that file...

    another weird thing.... while on computer2, i can take existing files
    from computer2 and cut/paste them onto a shared folder on computer1....
    it works... then if I try to CUT/COPY the SAME file BACK to
    computer2.. it gives the only error I am getting thru this madness:

    error copying file or folder

    cannot copy <filename>: access is denied

    make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is
    not currently in use.


    basically, I can take a file that has been on Computer2 for years, cut
    it into a shared folder on Computer1 and it will successfully paste (or
    move) into computer1's shared folder.... then if I try to move it back
    to Computer2 (reversing the method) it gives access denied as mentioned
    above)... so I have to physically get on Computer1 and move the file
    back to Computer2...

    also...

    I just noticed that if I am on computer2 and create a file (.txt) on a
    computer1 shared folder, I can CUT it over to computer2... its as
    though only newly created files can be moved... not old ones....

    through this problem, i can still cut/copy/move/paste files into shared
    folders to and from computer2 and computer3.......

    i have checked several settings under user management (activated guest
    account and confirmed that restrictanonymous is set to 0 in
    registry).....

    ANY suggestions appreciated.. very frustrating... Thanks!!

    Asynchronous access / visibility is a very commonly reported problem here. One
    of the most common causes of this problem would be a misconfigured or overlooked
    personal firewall, or other security component. The restrictanonymous setting is
    one of several items to check. There are several other possibilities too, and
    any might be the cause of your problem. Read this article with an open mind.

    http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/10/irregularities-in-workgroup-visibility.html

    For more direct help, provide "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all" from each
    computer, so we can diagnose the problem. Read this article, and linked
    articles, and follow instructions precisely (download browstat!):

    Sorry for lack of information on first post... my laptop isnt home
    right now but here are ipconfig/browstat from the other 2.. i think you
    may be onto something with the browstat return on the problem
    PC(Computer1)... for some reason, running browstat on Computer1 is not
    returning anything mentioning itself.. could not open key in reg
    doesnt sound good either.... here are the logs:

    OK, if Computer3 is part of the symptoms "could not MOVE, CUT, or COPY a file
    FROM computer1 to computer2 or 3 if I was ON computer2 or 3....", then you'll
    have to diagnose the problem when it's attached to the network. There is no way
    that we can diagnose the problem without the proper diagnostics.
    1) Attach Computer3 to the network.
    2) Wait an hour (browser latency period).
    3) Extract "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all" from all 3 computers.
    4) Don't make any changes to the network until additional diagnostics can be
    done (per examination of "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all").

  5. Has one of your computers recently been configured with a firewall lately?
    B/c I had this exact same problem on my network, and it was all because of my
    firewall's level was set so high on one of my computers that it would only
    allow me to see my other workstations on my network, but when I would try to
    access them in my workgroup it would give me the permissions error. Check it
    out, it could be something so simple your firewall being set so high that
    seems to cause all of your headaches...

  7. I have a similar problem problem with *.exe copies. I have an XP Home system
    on a desktop and a XP Pro system on another desktop.

    While processing on my XP Pro system I can copy any type of file from my XP
    Pro to my XP home and from my XP Home to my XP Pro system. If I am on my XP
    Home system I can only copy non *.exe files from my XP Pro system to my XP
    Home system. If I try and copy an *.exe file, I get the access denied
    message. I can copy *.jpeg and any no exe file.

    I have also set up an XP Pro system to another XP Pro system and in this
    enviroment I can only copy non *.exe files. Any other file extension I can
    copy from either system to the other system.

    This appears to be an XP Pro system problem. I have used both types of
    systems on a wireless network and a wired network thru a Linksys and D-Link
    router. The effect is the same on both enviroments.

    Does anybody understand why this is happening.

    I just got done dealing with the same problem. For me, it was my recently installed antivirus software (kaspersky). The problem applied to all shared files/folders created or modified while the av software was installed. Even after uninstall of the av software, the problem persisted for those files. No problems with shared files and folders created and/or modified in the absence of the av software (before or after).
