now no matter what name I give the comp I get the error message "that name already exists on the network" I looked in event log and get this
"the name "bbbbb .0" could not be registered on the interface with IP 192.168.0.8. The machine with IP add 0.0.0.0 did not allow name to be claimed"
I connected with a cable this morning to Ethernet card and all is well . it is just the wireless that gives errors.
Ten minutes after the cable was connected I got the error message again. I uninstalled Kaspersky Virus 2013 and it all stopped. there is something about Kaspersky Virus 2013 that doesn't like networking.
