Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Hi there. As of recently my Windows XP Home configuration has went haywire. Just about 3-4 days ago I could not access the shared folders, sign into Skype/MSN, access my PC through LogMeIn Remote or download torrents. The only thing this computer is used for is getting some movies from torrent sites and accessing my shared hard drives, and the only access I have is with VNC Viewer.
On accessing the shared folders I get the following message:
\\an-tower is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Access is denied.
And when trying to access torrents via the downloader, it tells me there are no open ports for downloading.
I checked Windows Firewall, the service is off, if I enable it to turn off the Firewall, I have no access to it due to a "Group Policy". I done a registry fix to remove the policy restrictions, however when I reopen the firewall configuration, it is restricted again.
Re-installing windows will solve all your problems.
