Thanks!


But, is that a security risk? I do have some wireless elements, but to be honest, I doubt even my nearest neighbor would be within range. However, could somebody remote desktop into one of my pc's then theoretically have access to my crappy music collection?

Does "Everybody" simply mean every one on my homegroup?

I think I may also try setting the networks to Workgroup just to to see if that also works.

Again, thanks.
If security is a concern, you may want to try adding PRISCILLA-PC to your permissions list, and deleting EVERYONE. See if that works.
