    Networking Xp to Windows 7/8

    I have several computers. One on XP; 2 on 8 and one on 7.
    I can connect, via the network the 8 and 7's together.
    I can connect from the XP to all.

    BUT i cannot connect from the 7/8's to the XP.

    This is what i get every time.
    I've reset the passwords on the XP, and it still hates it .

    I'm sure there is something stupidly easy i'm missing; and it used to work!
    Can someone, ANYONE help me before i sling out the XP machine and all it has on it?!

    When you add a machine to any network that XP is part of it's required that you run the Network Setup Wizard which you should be familiar with on the XP machine.
