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
