Windows 7: Network Problem

10 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Premium 64 BIT
Network Problem


I would like to acces a different computer over the current network I am using.

When I go on the "network" folder, it shows and displays the range of computers that are currently on my network..

(I have tried in vain to deactivate on the computer I would like to connect to all of the restrictions)

When I select the computer that I wish to connect to and double click, an error message pops up, (I have tagged the image that hopefully you will see)

I have tried everything but there just has to be something that I am missing.

Might it be helpful if I were to precise that the computer I wish to connect to via the network is under Windows Vista Premium. (--> yea I know this is the Windows 7 site but lol I myself am under windows 7 so.. yeah ! ^^)

I appreciate your help guys..

Gui x)

PS - sorry.. I am in france so I bought a french version of Windows 7 --> all of this to say that my default language is in french.

I hope that won't be too much of the problem nevertheless !
