Inaccessibility of XP machine on network after restart

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":
