You have to designate one PC and the main PC to create the workgroup on. When that is set up you are give a password. Then the other PC's have to join the network you created by using that password. Once the password is enter then that PC is/has joined that network (what ever name you created for that network).

According to your screen shot you haven't created a network.

Make sure in the UAC that there are no passwords setup for each account you have.

Then in the network and sharing center, advanced sharing settings, scroll down to password protected sharing and tick "turn off password protected sharing" on both PC's.

Make sure to turn on network discovery is ticked for both PC's.
