I was having problems with an otherwise properly set up Home LAN-- If the AD Blocker function of TweakXP is enabled you will become locked up (non functioning) when you try to access any shared files in your network places. For a complete run down please see this thread: http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=19939#post19939 I disabled the AD Blocker function and the Network Places functioned properly again. I do not know what, exactly, in the AD Blocker that causes the problem. Mabe someone out there can figure it out. Hope this helps some of you avoid the aggravation I experienced.
