I just started using our first Windows 7 machine to help administer my XP Pro/ Server 2003 environment. My problem is that i cannot use UNC paths in Windows Explorer to connect to other computers. Instead, i get an error that says "Windows cannot access \\pcname\C$. check the spelling ...otherwise there might be a problem with your network..." (diagnose does nothing).

i have completely disabled Windows Firewall. All options in Network & Sharing are set to allow. I am in a domain, not a Homegroup. the problem persists regardless of using names or IPs. I even tried a recommended regedit of adding a "LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy" key to "HKLM\software\machine\windows\currentversion\policies\system" but this did nothing as well.

thanks in advance...

If you have windows 7 home, how did you get it to join the domain? If it's like the other home versions, it won't join.

See if disabling UAC helps.
