So you are saying that my win7 computer and my XP computers need to all have the same windows login user name and passwords, then it will not popup the login box when I click on the network places folder in XP computer anymore?

hmmm, will have to give that a try. I find it odd that it does not do it the other way around, win7 to popup box. This must just be a win7 thing....cause my XP computers have different passwords, yet I have never had the pop up box for them.

Thanks! I will keep my fingers crossed and let you know! The nice thing I know is that my struggles and solution will help someone else who may google the same issue and come across this board like I did!

UPDATE: That was it! thank you!!!
