Hello,

For Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) only. I was installing a new PC and setup network for my client this afternoon. It took me hours to figure out why I failed to access the shared folders on the new PC that I have just installed.

The problem was actually caused by some new changes to functionality in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2. When I double click the new PC in my network places, it asks me to enter username and password.

Hi,

try this 1,

1) You have to enter the destination PC's username and password.

2) You can create a new username and password on the destination PC so that

other users can login with that username and password to your computer

through networkfor for sharing files.

3) Another way is to try to enable the guest account in destination PC.
