Remote shutdown curse!

This problem is driving me kabonkers. I have searched in google but it has just taken me around in circles. I have 3 computers in my house. My laptop is running Windows 7 Pro. My desktop is running Windows Vista Home and my other laptop is running Windows 7 Home. I've tried to remote shutdown one of these computers from the GUI prompt but it always returns with "Error 5 access is denied". Is there any way to fix this. I know Windows 7 and Windows Vista Home doesn't have the Local Group Policy editor. Is there any way I can fix this.

I know it has been a longggg time since i posted to this post. But, for those who are also having this problem I solved it. All you have to do is create the same user account on both machines, or you can enable the administrator account on both machines but, you have to have the SAME password for both accounts on both machines
