WHAT USERNAME?? WHAT PASSWORD??
I never set up any passwords. Anything I put in there gets turned down. I can pull up a password on one machine, but if I type it in on the other machine, it still won't let me in. And I still don't know what username to put. I tried the computer name and the login name, for which I have no password set and I'm still locked out. Do I have to transfer files with my thumb drive even though I should be linked?? BTW, when I was running XP on all 3 machines, they networked just fine.
OK, I had similar problems, and managed to not have to resort to sneaker net. This is do-able, and with the help of the folks here, fairly trivial.
Now, are the computers all running WIndows 7? Are they part of a Homegroup?
We're going to need some more info on your lash-up, but believe me, it can be done.
