0x800040005 Error when Trying to Access Network Computers
I have a new Vista laptop with which I am able to access other computers on my home network. I am on the network and able to ping the other computers by IP address. I have set up all the computers' workgroup names to be the same. The other computers are running Windows XP SP2, and they can access each other and even another Vista laptop just fine.

However, when I try to access them from this new Vista laptop, I get the error message:
Error: 0x800040005
Unspecified error

Does anybody know what might be causing this, and what I might be able to do to fix this?
