Windows Cannot Access "\\" from only one computer


  • I have a major problem with my Windows 7 Ultimate; which is:

    1. I have 2 computers, one of them is a laptop. Both of them are having the same version of operating system (Windows 7 Ultimate x64).

    2. Each one of them has a Static IP; my PC: and my Laptop: In each one of them, the "Enable NetBios over TCP/IP" option is enabled. Both of them can ping each other by name and IP.

    3. When I try to access the laptop from my PC it goes on, when I try to do the opposite, it gives me the following error: "Network Error; Windows Cannot Access \\ - Error Code: x80070035".

    4. Some times when it accesses the PC and I try to open my shared partition, it gives me the following: "Network Error; Windows Cannot Access \\".

    I have scanned both of them > nothing at all. I have tried to turn off the windows and the ESET Smart Security, but in vain.
