Does the Win 7 machine have a login password?
You could need to enter the password in the remote computers to be able to see the shared folders/drive.

Its been a while, but I do recall I had to ADD a PW on the server I was trying to use, [more]

Re: Anti-virus for old computer

Try Clamwin.

I've used it a few times when in a pinch, even have a "Portable" version of it on my flash drive for computers with no internet access when I'm out on location.

Re: My Next Computer

Since Lenovo was a spinoff of IBM, they started out with a quality product.

Re: P/E Rationalization

Again, in case I wasn't clear the first time I posted it, "I don't think honor has anything to do with it."

Re: P/E Rationalization

I don't think there's "Learning" involved.
