View workgroup computers

In Network Tasks, When clicking 'View workgroup computers' I get the
following message:

* 'WORKGROUP" is not accessable. you might not have permission to use this
network resource. contact the administrator of the server to find out if you
have access permissions.

The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available *

It worked prior to the XP SP3 and installing MS Office Accounting that
includes a SQL Server.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure the file & printer sharing exeption is still ticked in Windows
Firewall. Then reboot all PCs & try again.

This sounds like a Browse Master problem. In most cases this can be
caused by a firewall problem on even one computer on the network.
"Browstat" is a good diagnostic tool for these problems but it's not
simple. Start here:

and follow the Browstat link if necessary.

HTH,
