Problem 1
Laptop and OCCASIONAL-PC after every restart when trying to connect to NAME-PC prompt for username/password even after I've clicked remember my credentials.

Problem 2
This only happened on OCCASIONAL-PC but now is present on laptop as well. When I log into my PC from the others I'm only able to see Public in the user folder when originally I could see all the users meaning I now cant see and enter the user where all my media is effectively stranding it on my computer.
