      Cheers for your advice fellas- we followed all the tips you gave & were starting to get somewhere, but it seems that part of the problem must have been with the 3rd party security software not letting the local network through.

      we probably could have found the right setting - but as it turns out, I just put the Mcafee on both machines (i'd bought a 3 user licence anyway) & it sorted itself out - The McAfee easy network utility found the PC from the laptop & the laptop from the pc without any further fiddling about. Ta Da!!!
      Many thanks
      Kath
