    See post 6 and 8. See the info about checking the registry and also how to check permissions.
    To be honest I have. I just don't get it. Sorry I am just not very good at this kind of stuff. Thanks for being so patient.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to go through the steps in the links I posted to diagnose this, since no one else has physical access to your computer. Checking the registry locations on the problematic computer(s) is a start. The net use command also helps to diagnose. Checking Advanced sharing also helps to diagnose.

    The only other thing that can cause issues is third party security software and any firewall policies on computers on the network.

    I have switched off all firewall and tried also, but still no luck.

    Test user has spaces windows doesn't like that try a user without spaces and don't forget you must set NTFS permission as well

    I tried removing the spaces, does not work.

    What is NTSF permissions? Just did a search on this and it brings up stuff I did not understand. Can you please explain how I can go about setting this permission?

    Thanks.

    For folder or filename with spaces, use " " to put the share in.Batchfile
    net use y: "\\mycomputername\folder with spaces"
