Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"
I've got a desktop computer with XP Pro SP3 and a laptop with both XP and Windows 7(dual-boot). These two computers are connected through a router in a network(desktop comp-wired, laptop-wireless). Everything works fine, except the sharing in Windows 7. From the desktop computer I can access all resources on the laptop without problems. From the laptop, everything works fine too, when I try to access the desktop computer's shared folders and printers, but ONLY FROM XP. Every time I want to do this from Windows 7, I'll be prompted for a "network password". I have no idea what I had to enter - I did a search over the internet, and found following suggestions:
-turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, public folder sharing at the Advanced Sharing Settings, and disable password-protected sharing
-both computers are in the same workgroup
-disabled the limitation of blank passwords in the group policy editor
NOTHING WORKED. (firewall might not be the reason, because I use Windows Firewall, and it's configured to enable sharing)
What username/password do I have to enter, or how could I access the resources without a password? Thanks in advance for your help.

Try this adjustment on the XP machine. This usually works to get rid of the password prompt.
Goto... Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Security Options
Scroll down to... Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts
Select... Guest only and not Classic.
