Hi all, need alittle help here.
I'm a Mac newbie, just bought a 12" Powerbook Sunday and I must admit, I'm having a blast with it..I love it.

I set it up alright, got on the internet *You could have guessed right :o *
though my wireless network setup in my house.

Today I tried and got my PB to talk and exchange files with my XP machine..then I hit a snag. Now when I try to exchange files from the Mac to XP and vice versa, my XP machine takes a dump, It totally stops any and all networking, Internet Email File Exchanging...everything. If I stop the Mac from talking with the XP box and let it set, XP will then start slowly going back on the net and downloading.

Anyone have a suggestions?

Thanks All

Does your PC by chance have a worm that is clogging up network traffic? You can have the worm on your Mac and not know it because its not effecting it, but that doesn't mean you can't infect yourself or others.

I've ran antiv on the windows machine this morning..good idea though, never thought about that.
