Blank Passwords

No you don't have to have a password to move files between Xp & Windows 7.
After you have shared a folder in Windows 7 use regedit and search for "blankpassword". You will get 3 hits. Ignore the first one and hit F3 to find the next. Change the value from 1 to 0. Hit F3 again and do it once more.
Exit and your done!

this is true, but less secure, reason why to use the user/pass accounts to manage. Also, this affects the security setup permissions used on an XP share. If someone has this setup on say "workgroup", and doesnt pay attention to where the laptop may roam, like a hotel or such, those shares will be exposed unless you turn everything off (filesharing) when you are not on your own private secure network. This is the good practical reason and feature that MS has implemented with the Home, Work, and Public type of network to choose from, instead of doing all this manually like done in the past. Or you just figured out to not use a common workgroup. how many family members do you know that go and setup their workgroup name? was about 10% in my case, lesson learned.

Hello,

I'm using Windows 7 for the desktop computer and XP home for a netbook. The netbook always forget the password to connect to the Windows 7 desktop. I don't have this with XP pro because there's a check to make it remember the password.

Any solution ?

Hope it helps you.
