Windows 7: Homegroup Asks for user name/password

27 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.
Homegroup Asks for user name/password

I'm trying to connect my Desktop and my laptop but my homegroup keeps asking for a user/password even though password protected sharing is turned off.

Funny thing is that I can connect from my desktop TO my laptop but not the other way around.
I've read and tried everything I can. PLease help?

Just a quick note. I did a fresh reinstall of windows 7 and everything on my network was working great until I did a mass windows update and now I am back to my original problem.
