I have been a happy XP User for years. I took the jump to 7 and I do like it but I cannot get my networking working. I have a mac laptop that I used to use to easily stream movies etc - I just have a few shared folders on my network, my xp pc would show up on my mac and I could easily browse the shared folders. When I moved to 7 this no longer worked. Fistly it asked for a password when I had no system password at all - later I worked out how to get rid of that, I could see my pc on the network but then I could not see any files etc
I thought it was just the mac but i also have a WDTV media player which browses the shared folders on my network in the same way, used to work perfectly on xp, now it does all sorts of strange things.
I think I'm going to wipe and reinstall for a fresh install, but can anyone point me to how to get the easiest way to normal easy networking like I had before?
