Windows 7 HP 64 bit Can't Access Vista Shared Folder With Permission

I have few computer at home with different Windows version, there are Windows XP, Windows Vista HP 32 bit and Windows 7 HP 64 bit. I have two share folder in the desktop using Windows Vista HP 32 bit, Share A is set to Full Control for Everyone and Share B has a permission access setting, allow few persons to access only. All computer can access Share A without problem. However, there is a problem with Share B. I only allow 3 users to access this share folder, 2 of them using laptop with Windows XP Home and Professional, they can access Share B without problem, the 3rd user using laptop with Windows 7 HP 64 bit (username is Jolene) can't access Share B, it shown "You have no permission to access...". I already double check the user name and password, there are correct. I try to login to the network using Jolene in other laptop with Windows XP, it can access both Share A and B. That means the username and the permission setting are correct in the Windows Vista desktop. I removed the anti virus in Windows 7 HP laptop, disable Windows firewall, or bootup in Safe mode with network support, but still can't access Share B. I think there is some setting which I missed, hopefully someone can help me to solve it. Thank you very much.

Dear Kaktussoft, thanks for your prompt reply.
Yes. Both Vista & Win 7 have Jolene account and same password. This account work perfect in others laptop using XP but not in Win 7. I used other account (proven OK in others laptop) in Win 7, still not working. Might be something wrong in my Win 7.

In win7 you are logged on as Jolene. Then you access vista share and put in the credentials again... put in wrong password. Other error?

Windows 7 requires that you need to use a different User name on those machines.

Using the same User name will cause sharing problems or the machine won't show up on the network.

I have same user name on my home network as well. No problems at all! Do you have a link where the problem is described?

I've seen the problem quite a few times on this forum and it's happened to me before also, though it may have to do with the Computer Name rather than the User name. From what I understand the Computer name needs to be unique on the network as explained in the link below.

Also using the same User name in a Homegroup does not work at all, the machine simply won't show up on the Network if you do that.
