Windows 7: embarassing problem mapping/connecting two computers in

embarassing problem mapping/connecting two computers in

Wow I am so frustrated right now I cant remember the last time I was so frustrated! I have installed two fresh installations of 7264 x64 on two desktops. They are connected to a private network. I want to share the hard drives in both of them (say, C/: and D:/ )but I was running into all kinds of issues!!!

1) Tried connecting from one, got an error username and password but I changed the username and password many times only to have the same issue. Also it said username for pc1/user but I was trying to connect to pc2

2) after finally somehow getting access to the shares on pc1 and pc2 I mapped the drives, and upon restarting the computer I was unable to reconnect to the drives! Got odd errors, unable to reconnect. Also permission errors... ???

3) Even after it seemed to be working, I shared C: drive, but could not access it!!! No permission! I granted full access to everybody, but still nothing.

Why is it so impossible to do such an easy task in windows 7?

All i want is PC1 and PC2 should have their entire harddrives shared with each other... Is that too much to ask?!?

The guy I was installing this for, is super mad that after all that time he doesn't have what he wants...

can someone save the day??!
