Also, I think at one point I fixed this, but I've reinstalled Windows twice since then (no problems, just regular maintenance, I reinstall every few months), but I still had a problem: my family had to put in a username and password to be able to access my PC's shared files/folders. How do I remove that, after I join the network?

You could try turning off password protected sharing in the Advanced Sharing Settings. You may need to do this on both the Public and Home-Work windows.
