I am trying to access a Windows 7 shared folder on my HTPC from my Windows 7 laptop.  From that laptop, I can see the HTPC in my preview pane on the left side of Explorer, but cannot open it.  I am given the 'not accessible' message.  


I have set the permissions on the HTPC folder I want to access so that anyone who joins my data connection should be able to see it and the other folders I have decided to share.


During the initial login process, I was given the chance to 'remember this computer' so I clicked the box, which might be why I keep receiving the 'not accessible' message instead of a fresh login screen.  How do I reset this so I get the fresh screen back?


Do I have to create a Homegroup in order to share files on other Windows 7 computers?  


Thanks for your help in advance.
