Hi I am not an Absolute beginner but trying to get my laptop and desktop to share files is an ongoing struggle. I have them both connected to my BT Router Desktop by cable and laptop by wireless, no problems there. I have followed many tomes on how to setup file - sharing, even went as far as changing the registry setup as I was told XP does not like to file share between computers that do not have login passwords, as both of mine are used from home, I really do not need the security especially as I do not have any personal details on them. Any advice would be appreciated.
Sorry I already posted this on absolute beginners.
