Problem with Network Permissions

Specs: Windows XP, P4 2.00ghz
I am having trouble connecting to my desktop(xp) computer over my home network using my laptop(vista).
Note: this is a wired network.

Under Network Places on the desktop pc, i can see my laptop under the list of computers found on the network and i can access the shared folders.

When i go under Network with my laptop with Vista i see my desktop pc under the list of computers found on the network, but when i try to access it i am prompted with the following message:

\\MYPC is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.Contact the admin of the server to find out if you have access permissions

I have tried all the possible solutions for this issue on the MS website but none seem to work for me.

This issue started when i i had to reset the registry in order to upgrade my Internet Explorer from 7 to 8.

Is there something related with network permissions in the registry that i have to edit in order to solve my problem?

Make sure file sharing is enabled and that the shares are listed. Disable the firewall on both machines temporarily. Then test it again.
