Windows 7: Accessing network drives

Accessing network drives

I have windows 7 pro on two computers, how do I access complete network drives without sharing individual folders and and using passwords, I hate using passwords, and I don't have anything on my computers worth protecting, I wish windows 7 would just let me turn off all that security crap. I never had a problem with XP. Thanks

Thanks for the tip, but it's still not working, I keep getting asked for a password, but I don't have any passwords set up on either machine, windows 7 networking is crap in my opinion.
