    I have a home network between two computers, one xp pro sp2 (32 bit)
    the other xp home sp2 (32 bit).

    I just wondered for what reasons I might get an access is denied
    message when I try and access a shared folder on one of these
    computers connected to the home network?

    It seems strange this one because the actual folder I am trying to
    access is the Shared Documents Folder, which is the one that is
    usually the only shared folder on the system. I can't access this and
    it keeps giving me an access denied message, yet for other folders
    that are shared and configured in exactly the same was I can access
    these. What gives?
