When I try to see my Win7 computer (where I'm logged in either as adminstrator or user), I am told on my other computer in My Network Places, "Login Failure: user account retriction."

I have no need for security between my computers (which are side by side). How do I take eliminate all these passwords, etc.?

Thank you.

Thank you, mrzr7, for getting back to me so quickly. I have been going around in circles so much that I, now, can't remember how I got to the screen you are showing me. Could you remind me?

Again, thank you.

Found it.

Now do you suggest that I change to:

Turn off password protected sharing

?

Is the 128 bit encryption and/or the other questions significant for this?

As it is, the Win7 computer is still asking for a user name and password.

I wanted you to select the password and all the other allows in public. You must have a password for admin are you typing that in. You should only have to type it in once then it will remember it? As for your xp to 7 you need to select start/my network places/veiw workgroup computers/ other places/workgroup
Hope this helps some. I agree it should not be this hard and it should work. I have 8 differnt pc's networked with diffent os's and all sharing but it does take some work to get it done. Good luck to you

Thank you, myzr7, yet again.

My other computer is not on xp but 2000 pro.

Also (sorry to be dense), I'm not sure where you mean me to be when you say to "select password and other allows in public." I'm afraid I'm trying to run a bookstore and figure all this out on the fly. Could you walk me through this, or, if that is too much to ask (understandably), is there somewhere I can go to get up to speed?

In any case, I, again, thank you.

Sincerely,

WayCon

What I was going on about was I was thinking that you had not selected some settings that might help your cause. I am now trying to get a version of 2000 pro up and running so I can see about getting it shared. good luck to you.

Thanks rsvr85

I have searched forever trying to solve an issue with homegroup and was lucky enough to find your post.

I have homegroup set up for my desktop and laptop computers. Everytime that I would open up the HomeGroup from my laptop, it wasn't asking me for my HomeGroup password. It would always ask me for my username and password for my desktop computer. I found this to totally un-secured. If I want to add another computer to someone else in the family, I don't want to have to supply them my login information to my computer.

Your article showed me how to solve this issue....Many, many thanks!
