    I found that it was Symantec Endpoint Protection and disabling Network Threat Protect worked. I am sure I could add an exception but this computer did not need it enabled.

    I've tried using PDQ several times but never could get it to work with my XP boxes so always gave up until I found this guys blog article ---- http://dossy.org/2008/11/opening-up-windows-firewall-for-file-and-printer-sharing/ ---- basically I had to enable the File and Printer sharing exception on the XP firewall and change the scope from (subnet) to (any) - this guys vbs script did the trick. Thought I'd share this as I've spent quite a bit of time trying to figure this out.

     

    Set objFirewall = CreateObject("HNetCfg.FwMgr")
    Set objPolicy =objFirewall.LocalPolicy.CurrentProfile

    Set colServices = objPolicy.Services
    Set objService = colServices.Item(0)
    objService.Enabled = TRUE
    objService.Scope = 0
