    Network/sharing problem
    My Macbook Pro appears on my home network, I can see it on my PC but I can not see any shared machines/drives on my mac. I have been able to in the past. I was using a free avast anti virus but have disabled it and I have the mac firewall switched off
    Any bright ideas?

    I'm not really al that great at this stuff, though I usually don't have any problems getting my own stuff working.

    Open up Finder, head for the Go menu, Connect to Server

    All I do from there is put in smb://sharename

    Maybe see this page - section on joining a MS workgroup.

    Main page for Bonjour
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I did a post on file sharing some time ago. It might be of help. See the following thread:
