Windows 7: New build. Can get there from My Comp/Network, but not the run command

New build. Can get there from My Comp/Network, but not the run command

Hi :)

New W7 build. Static ip:

My other W7 computer, hooked up to the same router, is .100

I have shared a .101 folder by adding "Everyone" to the permissions. When on .100, I can access the .101 folder . by opening My Computer > Network. However, when I open the run cmd and type \\, I am prompted for a username and pwd.

Any ideas what I am missing?

Thanks in advance.


Got it. Did some more research, and this takes care of it:

Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change advanced sharing settings > Turn Off password protected sharing
