Network Help - Original item cannot be found.

I recently posted for some network help. You guys solved my problems. My dad just bought a new computer, and now a different problem is present. I can see his computer in the Network folder, but when I try to connect, it says "The alias "computer name" could not be opened, because the original item cannot be found."

My options are to Delete Alias, Fix Alias, or OK.

How can I connect to his computer.

By the way, I tried to access my computer through his and it worked fine. The problem is me accessing his computer.

I'm running a MacBook, he's running Windows XP.
