It is either a permission thing, or you have the firewalls on on one or both computers on and for some reason they are blocking your requests.
1. first try control panel>firewall>turn off , on both computers.
2. set your sharing permissions on each "shared" folder by right clicking on the folder and selecting properties then select sharing
If that dosen't work, go into control panel>folder options>view>deselect simple file sharing. Log out of windows, then make sure you are logged in as user with administrative rights. now you want to make sure you have a password on this account, so if not, go into control panel once again, select users, and create a password for an administrator account. go to the other computer and do the same, may as well keep the same password on both, this generally is NOT good security practice, but in your case it wont cause WW3. Now reboot and try again, you should be able to now share files from dedicated folders. let me know how this made out
