I've been through the sharing screens several times but I'm not familiar with the permissions screens if they are a problem. All machines are set to share everything with no passwords.
Are you using Homegroup or a Workgroup? If you're using Homegroup, try switching all the machines to the same Workgroup.
(There seem to be a lot of problems with Homegroup use, mainly they seem related to IPv6.)
From an earlier posting I made:
I set them all in the same Workgroup by going to Control Panel (set to view small icons) System -> Advanced System Settings -> System Name. There change the Workgroup name to be the same for all computers.
In Network and Sharing -> Advanced Sharing Options click the top option for all but the bottom two. Turn off Password Protected Sharing and under Homegroup Connections set "Use User Accounts and Passwords to connect to other computers."
On the systems, set up the shared folders and permissions you need.
