I have a Dell Desktop and Dell Laptop both running on Vista Home Premium with Norton Antivirus 2011. Had some issue networking originally but resolved after setting appropriate Trust Levels in Norton. Had motherboard recently replaced on laptop and although I can now occasionally use the laptop to access files on desktop I am asked for a user name and password. I do not remember setting this up and despite trying variations on what are my common user names and paswords I am sometimes unable to access my shared files. I say sometimes because if I go into network sharing and "look" at the password protection section (which is set to be off) I can sometimes access the files. This is annoying and a mystery!
Does anyone have any suggestion how to stop this or make sure the paaword protection is permantly off?
