    Dear Sir
    I'm running a small peer-to-peer network of 4 PCs 2
    running Win2000 and 2 WinXP (All PCs are Service Pack 1).

    Yesterday I had the same problem with both XP machines
    and 1 2000 machine. The properties of My Computer, My
    Network Places and Desktop dont't work and neither do
    network properties (I can't see the Workgroup or drive
    mappings) and applications don't run from Start>>>Programs
    but they do from the .exe file.

    I've got a firewall and all emails are automatically
    scanned with antivirus software but I initally guessed I'd
    picked
    up a virus as the only PC still OK is the one not using
    email services? However, I've scanned all PCs and I've run
    various patches
    but they haven't found anything wrong.

    I'm not sure what to do next-short of re-installing.
    Please could you help!

    Thanks in advance.
