    So I had a home network set up, sharing files, printers, and our internet connection. All was going well until today. The internet is working on all 3 computers, but I cant share files or printers. I cant "see" the other computers shared folders, and they cant see mine. I tried to Repair the Network but the error says Error while Clearing NetBT. What does this mean?

    PS the network was set up using the Home Network Wizard in XP

    Screw the home network wizard. Its useless. Just make sure each machine only has TCP/IP installed and that its bound to File/Printer sharing and Client for Microsoft Networks. Make sure all of your machines are in the same workgroup. If any of the machines are XP Pro or 2000, make sure the usernames and passwords used at logon exist on all of the machines. Make sure you've shared at least one folder on each machine.
