Windows 7: Windows cannot access shared folder

Windows cannot access shared folder

I am getting a typical error saying I do not have permission to access a shared folder and I should contact my network administrator.

Both computers are on Win 7 64bit.

Both are on the same workgroup. Both are classified as "Home" profile.
Both have: Turn on network discovery, file / printer sharing, turn on sharing, 128 bit encryption, turn off password (neither computer has a user admin password), and allow windows to manage homegroup connections.

I can see the computers in network, I can see the shared folders as I share them. But I cannot access them.
I even joined the same homegroup with the password, even tho before when I was sharing (pre formating) I don't remember to ever having to join that or remember that password for my other computers
