I have a Windows 7 machine set up as a simple data file sharing system. I have 8 folders being shared between multiple machines. The issue I am having is that after a while, any Windows XP client machine will not be able to access the shares, while Windows 7 and Vista still can. A simple reboot of the host system will clear things up, for about a few days. Any ideas as to why this may be?

CN: Windows 7/Vista can access windows file server, while Windows XP can for a few days, before getting a permissions denied error.
