Hi Everyone,

I have a Windows 7 computer which is linked to 2 other windows xp home & pro computers. My question is that i used to be able to go on the network and drop files etc..onto my husbancs windows xp home comupter. Now it is asking for permissions. I need to set up permissions for my husbands windows xp home computer and his laptop which runs windows xp pro.

I really need help with this one. I don't understand permissions.

Could someone help me set this up so that we can send files back and forth.

Thank you.

There is an article on how to allow or deny permissions to users and groups that you may find useful, you can read it here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
