XP Home on e-Machine now faulty after turning on 'Guest Account'

\015 My home network has a HP d530 (XP Pro sp3), an E-Machines T4480 (XP Home sp3), & a D-link (wired) router. The HP has always been able to see & manipulate any area / file on the T4480, but the T4480 (XP Home) could never 'see' the HP (XP Pro) in Network Places, nor acess it. I was advised I had to turn on the XP Home 'Guest Account'. It could now see the HP, but now the T4480 goes in to 'permanant hourglass' mode whenever I click on any of it's desktop Icons when I'm working at its' physical location. I have to reboot & then I get a 'Windows Explorer unable to end' error msg.help ?\015
