Windows 7: Win7 to Win7 Network issue

Win7 to Win7 Network issue

I got Win7 on both my laptop on PC.
I set the network, and computers see each other
but, when I try to access the shared drive, I'm getting this message: Image 1324847505-clip-35kb.png

My user permission set like this: Image 1324847635-clip-25kb.png

I do able to access to "users" folder on each PC. I compared the permissions, and they look the same.

Any idea what might be wrong?

Try adding whatever username you use on the PC to the list of users on the laptop. :)
