Hi,

I'm using Win 7 Ultimate and my other mate is using Win XP SP2. When I tried to connect to his computer, it asked for password even though he didn't set any password.
Any help here?

What do you mean connect to his computer? Through a local area network or the internet?

Through LAN.
That's when I type \\192.168.1.xx in the windows explorer to try to connect to his computer.

Is that to share files, access his hard drive, remote assistance, remote desktop, or what?

That is a built in security feature. Even when no password has been set for the PC being connected to. Remote Desktop will prompt for one as well.

@NPaMA : Remote Desktop, me think.

@ThunderZ : But the other computer can be connected without any password prompt. There's only a few computer that ask for password that has actually no password.

I don't really know much about this problem, but have you tried just pressing enter without actually typing a password? It has worked for me in a different situation. Otherwise, you could try setting a password on the machine you're connecting to?

Just suggestions, but they may be a simple solution to your problem. Let us know if anything happens. :thumbsup:
