My Network Places not working properly RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some unknown reason "My Network Places" on my laptop (XP Pro) is not now functioning.  I can see icons, but they are the generic Windows icons - not the shared folders icon.  When I click on any one of them it does not go to that networked place.  I get an error message.  I have never had this problem before.  I can work around by going to "laptop" in "view workgroup computers", and then access the networked site, but that is a hassel.  I would greatly appreciate insight on why this might be happening, and how to put "things" back to the correct, workable situation.

    Additionally - I have been using AVG (free) for a couple of years, and have not had this problem.  I recently installed nCleaner, and have used it for "cleaning" things up.  I have additionally installed ii on my desktop, and have done the identical procedures on both computers.  I do not have this problem on my desktop.

  • Hi. I'm having the problem with My Network Neighborhood icons being generic. Were you able to correct the problem? If so, what did you do? Thanks for sharing.
