My windows machine cannot access files on another windows machine which is on the same network. The pc I am trying  to access can be seen on the my network places but when I try to access it gives me this message " windows cannot access \\user pc" although the other pc's on the same network can access this machine.

The weird part I can access the files on the when I go through the IP address of the target machine.

Check the permissions of the shared folder and make sure you have included everyone read write access

If it still fails, check that the encryption on both machines matches if they are windows 7

Last but should be first, disable any firewall and try especially if  you are using avg antivirus.
