Laptop Dell Inspiron 8200 with XP Pro and Dell Desktop 4600 with XP Home. Laptop shows both computers in workgroup, but desktop does not. I can ping each computer successfully. Don't know what to try next?

Dear Sir,

Please press CTRL+ALT+Del and check whether the Windows Explorer is working.

Thank you.
