Check your wife's computer to see if your computer is allowed to access hers. Something may have changed there.

Just tried those suggestions with no luck.
I have never had to use a password before and have never seen that dialog box until a couple of days ago.

I checked my wife's computer as Jaycee suggested and found a dialog box with an unchecked square that said something like "Allow all users on the network to access this computer".
I checked it and now I can access all shared folders on her computer again. She says she didn't mess with it so the gremlins must have done it.
Thanks to all for your help.
