Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
This is an unusual error. Error Code 1236 - The network connection was aborted by the local system.
There is no single issue that causes this error code, so we need to verify all of the networking basics are covered and working.
1. Verify the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are fully entered and / or populated by the DHCP server. Click START, then RUN, type in CMD then click the OK button. Type IPCONFIG /ALL - verify the three fields all have valid info for your network.
2. Verify you can see the local network - including other computers and network devices. This will rule out the possibliity that this computer cannot see any network devices and not just the shared folders
3. Log the user out and have another user that can access the shared folders log into this comptuer and try to access the shares. The user profile could be corrupted and preventing the user from accessing the shared folders. IF the new user cannot access the shared folders, then it is the PC / OS causing the issue. IF they can access the shared folders, backup the original user's data, delete their profile and have them log in again to create a new profile.
It is always recommended to upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 3 - unless you have a very specific program that will not run on SP3.
