Windows 7: "Enter network password" when attempting to access XP share.

"Enter network password" when attempting to access XP share.

For some reason I can no longer access my XP shares from Windows 7 Home Premium. This was working for about 2 months (since I got this machine) but now everytime I attempt to access my XP files it asks for the network password (of course there is no such thing). Any ideas?

Please allow the Guest account access to all of the files on both the share security and the file system security settings.

You can start this process by right clicking the share and root directory and hitting the Security tab, then adding 'Guest' and allow entries, respectively until completed.

While you're there you may as well be sure that there are no deny permissions active.
