Windows 7. must control fist. of. death...
added the new Alienware lappy (also Win7 pro x64) called SQUEEE (it's rather good at playing games unlike the main PC which is a bit slow graphicsWise) to the LAN & since then, my several win XP machines (both VMs and real hardware) plus the xbox-1 (erk, stopped streaming tunes to listen to whilst nodding off, this is mission critical stuff!) lost ability to access shares on the main Win7 PC :(
Have had to furtle through google reams of other people with problems of XP machines loosing / not able to see shares from Win 7.

Telling Win7 to fuck off and not use SMB2 and just use SMB1 seems to have helped and made all XP / SMB things (XBMC on XBOX1-) work again :-
regedit &
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters SMB2=dword:00000000
If not there, create it.
