Cant do a remote desktop login

Hello

So I have this issue, like everybody else .

I just set up a new computer and they both are on the same wireless network and are even connected to eachother through bluetooth. I'm trying to connect to my laptop from my desktop tower (the new one). The Remote desktop thing is asking for a log-in for the laptop. Well I do have a password, so I enter in my user name Shannon, and then my password....It doesn't work...try it again. and it doesn't work. Even though it accepts the username, the password isn't accepted, and I know 1000000% that it is right. So whats going on? The tower is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and the laptop is running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

What should I do?

As an alternative to remote desktop in windows, might I suggest team viewer....very simple to use and very user friendly. There are other free ones out there but I find this one to be the easiest to use.

TeamViewer - Free Remote Access and Remote Desktop Sharing over the Internet
