Windows 7 Network Password Issue
Sorry for creating the billionth thread on this topic, but I've tried every suggestion I could possibly find here and via google.
To start, my issue is that one of my Windows 7 computer (We have 3 on the network, no other computer after that) is now all of a sudden asking for a Login/Password on that machine. It has never done it before until now.
All three computers are on the same Homegroup and nothing has changed other than we booted up the PC this morning and now asking this. Prior to this (and still the case) the computer we are trying to access has no password and a blank logon as it's basically our file media computer we use to share.
Here are the options in the Network Sharing that are enabled, anything not listed is disabled in that area. These options are the same for "Home or Work" and "Public"
1) Turn on network discovery
2) Turn on file and printer sharing
3) Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the Public Folders
4) Media Streaming is on
5) Use 128-bit encryption to help protect file sharing connections (recommended)
6) Turn off password protected sharing
7) Allow Windows to manage homegroup connections (recommended)
I've tried everything I can possibly think of, even choosing the opposite option and reboot then reverting back to the original and rebooting. All other computers on the network have the same options as well so it's not a conflict of different options on each of ours.
Here is what the dialog box gives (I've blanked out the user name connecting and the connecting to PC)
If anyone has any thoughts I'd love to hear them and thanks for reading and any help you can provide.
Edit: After some further messing around I got the issue solved and have marked the thread as such.
