Windows 7: Networking Problem

Networking Problem

Need some help with this problem. I'm computer savvy but this one's a stumper.

  • 3 networked computers in the home. 1 7 Ultimate 64bit (mine), 1 7 Home Prem 64 bit (wifes), 1 XP Pro
  • Wifes and mine are in a homegroup. Also can see all three computers on network
  • Problem: I can see her computer on Network and Homegroup. When I click on her computer on Network it prompts me to enter username and password. When I go to Homegroup and click to open say Documents there's not response.
  • On wifes computer, she can browse my shared files on Network and Homegroup no problem.
  • I can browse XP machine no problem.

Things that I've done so far
  • Disabled Password protected sharing on both 7 machines
  • Added an account on wifes computer. Admin level
  • Tried to log in with using my account then her account. Access denied
  • Rebooted
  • Turned off all firewalls on her machine
She can browse my computer fine but when I try and browse her machine, I get the Enter password BS or no response from Homegroup folders.

Does anyone have a clue as to what the hell is going on??? I need access to her computer because it serves as a print server! Thanks!
