Solution to Error: Can't see other Computers on Network

Can't see other Computers on Network

Am using XP SP3.

When I go to network connections,
 Right Click on LAN,
Click on Properties Under General Tab,
click on Install and Click On Service
 ..all  I see is a listing for a McAfee driver but nothing for Microsoft .
I removed McAfee from my computer awhile ago & it must have created problems as I can't see other computers on the network.Is there a Microsoft driver I need to install and will that
help fix the problem of not see other computers on the network.

On the General tab of the Properties for your Local Area Connection network adapter, you should see a box under the heading "This connection uses the following items."  Most Windows XP setups for home use have 4 entries in this box:  Client for Microsoft
Networks, QoS Packet Scheduler, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

If you don't have these, you should install them, although you don't really need the QoS Packet Scheduler. 

You seem to have almost got to the right place, but you should note that when you click the "Install" button under the box, you are given 3 choices:  Client, Service, and Protocol.  The "Client for Microsoft Networks" obviously is a "client"; "Internet Protocol
(TCP/IP)" is a "Protocol" and the other two are "Services."

What items do you have installed?

Use the System File Checker tool to repair corrupted or missing system files:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Type cmd, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to open the elevated command prompt (I.e. Command prompt with administrative rights).
  3. The User Account Control window should appear, be sure that the action it exhibits is correct, and then press the Continue button.
  4. Type or copy paste the below command line into it without quotes:
  5. "Sfc /scannow"
