    Since a few weeks ago (no system changes e.g. Updates TMK), my Win 7 machine BETA fails to connect to shared drives on my Win XP Home machine ADVENT after ADVENT has been powered off/on, saying:

    Location is not available

    [drive] is not accessible
    Logon failure: unknown username or bad password

    ADVENT fails to show in BETA Explorer Network. FWIW, ADVENT can successfully remote connect to BETA.

    After restart of BETA, problem is gone. Anyone know a better workaround/fix? Thanks.


    * And entering \\ADVENT yields this Windows Security dialog:

    if I enter my ADVENT username/password (despite that the dialog says Domain
    BETA), I get "\\advant is not accessible":
