Lost my home network - HELP!

    Ever since I installed Norton 2006 my home network has been inaccessible.

    Every time I try to access previously accessible folders on the netwroked PC's i get error messages telling me the Network path was not found.

    I've tried making a new network, this seems to work but I then get the same messages.

    Now I have two networks, neither of which work. When I first set it up it was easy now nothing I am trying works :(

    1) Does anybody know if norton 2006 could be the issue - as far as I am aware I've enabled across the network range so norton should be allowing the network.

    2) How can I delete these useless networks from "my network places"?

    I would rip off Norton or disable it - easiest way to find out if that is the culprit.

    Yes I would say that’s Norton… you have to add the computers to the trusted sites in Norton personal firewall and if I remember right run the Norton network setup wizard within Norton ,check out the manual from Here and look on page 12/13 it will give you the steps to correct the problem. (maybe)

    I had this problem with NPF a few years back, it can be a pain to setup.:)

    I'd tried disabling norton but that didn't work!

    However I checked out the manual and I'm now back up and running after I checked out the "Trust Control" tab

    Thanks chaps!!!
