Windows 7: Need permission to get on another machine

Windows 7
Need permission to get on another machine

My Desktop machine (Win XP) can see my laptop machine (Win 7) but won't let me on.

Laptop can access Desktop.

I don't need a password to get on my laptop and both networks are on Mshome.

The only thing I know I did was change password after "sleep" and then "removed" password all together.

Removed "Account password" but think that is the same.

I think you need a password for both. I would put a password in place for both. Try that.
