Default Sharing files over Win98SE


I have two PCs (A & B) networked. Each PC shares 2 disks (Full).

Sometimes this works fine - I can see both mapped drives from both
PCs.

Sometimes, when I try to view the shared drives on B from A, explorer
locks up. The only way to close explorer is Ctrl-Alt-Del and then I
have to reboot. Even this process fails as all tasks require ending
manually.

Often a reboot fixes the problem but sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes I can view the files fine but when I try 30 minutes later it
locks up again.

I have had no problems viewing the shared drives on A from B.

The protocols on each PC are IPX/SPX and TCP/IP. Both are bound to the
network cards.

DNS is disabled on both PCs.

Any ideas on what I should look at?

Thanks very much

no, but sometimes using SFC and extract a new copy of Explorer.exe helps
