The "... not accessible ..." and similar errors can come from a number of
problems. Personal firewalls, incorrect network settings, and security /
sharing settings can all contribute to the not accessible error.
I'd start by looking at the NetBT setting, and personal firewalls. Some
firewalls don't react properly, when disabled.
And look at file sharing as setup on the Vista computer.
