Enter Network Password

I have a PC (Windows 7 Pro) and a Laptop (Windows 7 Home) attached as a network. PC is PC and Laptop is PC2...PC can see and access PC2 just fine. PC2 can see PC but the "Enter Network Password dialog box pops up. Both systems have the password protected sharing turned off. I am not using a homegroup, just workgroup. I have looked around and have not found a solution without success. Any assistance would be aprreciated.

Make sure that the firewall and anti-virus you're using isn't causing the problem.

After goofing with this for an hour or two, finally just rebooted and now it works. Don't know what changed, but it is as I want it to be. Thanks for reading and thanks for the reply.
