Default Permission Issues caused from moving PC from Domain to Workgroup

I was working on a computer yesterday which was originally on a Domain. The user now moved his computer off the company's Domain and is now working at a jobsite which is on a workgroup. After I put the user on the designated workgroup, the computer had trouble accessing the the files which were shared throughout the workgroup. The error message mentioned the user not have permission to access the files/computer.

Is there something I can do to bypass this "permissions" issue?

OS: WinXP Pro 32bit

How are the files being shared? Via external storage or from a server, or from another pc in the workgroup? You probably should map a network drive, and change the login as a different user option from the new computer to the computer that is sharing the files.

the files are being shared throughout another pc. Ok, ill try and map the drive. and can you elaborate on "change the login as a different user option from the new computer to the computer that is sharing the files."

thanks

sure, when you go to my computer and from the tools menu select map network drive. It has options for drive letter, path and there is a blue link there that says something like sign-in as a different user. When this happens for the username you should put something like:
\\computernameofcomputerwherefilesareshared\validu sernameonthatcomputer
then, for the password, whatever the password on that computer is. Also, it is helpful if the computer sharing the files is also a Windows XP Pro machine.

I'm on vista, but here is what it sort of looks like.
