    Why would your users want to browse by this? We have ours locked down to stop peeping toms trying to access what they shouldn't

    Re: unable to browse network....

    it is locked down for most users except for users that are allowed in certain areas (and they live in a seperate ou with strict folder permissions on the available folder)

    its was set up like this before i got here and im not allowed to change it either? managers hey!

    i thought it may be a service that has taken the knock>?

    Thats the service that allows the computer to take part in the network just like the server service takes care of sharing folders/printers etc. Probably the only 2 sensibly named MS service names

    seen this a few times, make sure the workstations are on SP2
    or re run it, that has fixed it for me in the past.
