I've searched this site for this problem but none of the fixed have worked.
For many years I have WinXP 2002 SP3 on my desktop computer and I had Vista Home Premium 32bit on the my laptop they would both connect to each other no problem. I've had problems with IE8 on Vista always crashing with no fix available so I install Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32bit on the laptop and it still connects to my WinXP desktop. I can't access my laptop from WinXP even though both are set to WORKGROUP. Now on Windows 7 the same as I did on Vista I set every folder I wanted to share with an additional Guest user and set it to read/write. I also set each folder with Share with Homegroup (read/write).
On WinXP I have a shortcut on the desktop Fujitsu-AMILO
which is the laptop name which worked before but when I double click now it says:
\\Fujitsu-amilo is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the Administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Logon failure: user acount restriction. Possible reason are blank passwords not allowed, login hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced.
There is no password set on either system. I can do a search for computers on WinXP and Fujitsu-AMILO
shows up but it shows the same message when I double click it.
I've read and checked every option in this thread but the problem still exists.
Any suggestions will be appreciated?
