On Lenovo try changing in Advanced Sharing Settings (Network and Sharing Center) - for Home/Work - select "Use User Accounts and Passwords to connect to other computers". Will ask for a relog, restart if you don't want to bother. Perhaps HomeGroup is problematic. that's why not accepting the credentials.

Permissions seem okay. What is the exact error message you receive when accessing a share such as 'K' using a remote machine?

Can you also try with the other PCs please? Lets see if it is Webmain or Lenovo's fault.

Did you disable firewalls?

Yes disabled Firewalls..no difference.. enabled again now.

I am not sure about the message on bubsuelee.

BTW I have always had the same user David and passwords on all boxes on my lan without any problems having them all on and used at the same time.

Please remove your last screenshot Mail address visible

Alright tried disabling firewall on Webmain yet?

You can check the stored credentials (Manage users) on BubSueLee, and then restart if nothing stored.

Things may have messed up while changing to HomeGroup. If things don't improve, I say leave HomeGroup on Webmain and a test PC and lets see if Workgroup works alright.

The other 3 can access each other, right? Check workgroup name on one of them, then see if Webmain is on same one. (Right click Computer - either on desktop or Start Menu - and Properties)
