I'm trying to log into my wife computer which is in the bedroom. But it keeps asking me for user name and password. Here is a picture of it. So where do I get this user name and password?

Her pc looks like it`s a member of a Domain, not a workgroup.

And all this has to be set up correctly.

It`s in Network & Sharing center, right click the network icon at the bottom right to get there.
