So i'm wracking my brain over this.

For 2 hours now i've been working on getting a PC that until this morning worked just find when connecting to Windows 7 file shares. today after a restart it always prompts for a password even though it's disabled on the Windows 7 machine.

I have tried changing Network Access from classic to Guest in security policies of GPEDIT
I've tried enabling and disabling the password protected sharing
restarting the computers
creating new accounts that are the same on both machines and i'm getting nowhere, I'm about to strap a bomb to the XP machine and call it a day.

the other Windows 7 machines connect and share fine on the network, anyone have any ideas

HKLM\Software\CurrentControlSet\Lsa
and set "limitblankpassworduse to 0 solved my issue

 

EDIT: for a time it seems as now it's back... if it's any help, i updated Quickbooks once i got it working and it stoped after that, Though i think thats unrelated. Any thoughts?

Check and check.

Gave up on it, just going to get a new PC that will actually function properly.

10 year old Dell running XP home does not make for a good networked workstation

Not a bad idea but just in case check the firewalls on both to make each is allowing the other access
