This is possibly being caused by NTLMv1 now being turned off by default 
and/or 'server min protocol' & 'client min protocol' now being set to 
SMB2 by default.

Having said that, you really shouldn't be using XP any more, it is 
insecure and EOL, the only really reason I can think for using it would 
be if some high value machine is controlled by it and XP cannot be 
replaced by a later version.
