Network Trouble

I'm running windows 7 ultimate on one of my computers and the other computer is
running windows 8.1 and and I seem to have a problem in the networking section..

windows 7 can see windows 8.1 in the sharing centre but every time I try to go in, it
keeps asking for a password and the same with windows 8.1 .. I don't have any password
on my computers.. where am I going wrong in this ??

You don't have permission to access the file or folder you're trying to access
Contact the owner of the file or folder to ask for permission. If you're on a corporate network, contact your network administrator.

If you hadn't created it yet, you can follow this tutorial on how to create: Homegroup - Create

You need to be on the same group or domain to access shared folders/files.
