The LLTD Responder is absolutely NOT REQUIRED for pre-Vista Windows
computers to interact with Vista via Windows Networking.
The LLTD responder is only needed if you want pre-Vista computers to be

16. click OK; click OK; click Close - this change will take affect
immediately - no need to logoff or restart
Also, as stated in other posts in this thread and others - make sure you
don't have a third party firewall blocking the ports or programs needed
