Network password for Vista from XP

  1933 15:47 26 Mar 08

Setting up a new Vista machine and networking with 2 XP machines. I can access either XP from the Vista and the 2 XPs are OK between them. However I am asked for a Password and User Name if I try to access the Vista from either XP, the Vista icon is showing as being on the netwok. How do I set up these as I do not recall being asked for any details when starting to use the Vista PC? All other functions on the network are OK - Internet - printers etc. Many thanks Dave

Turn off the 'Password Protected Sharing' setting in Network & Internet>Network & Sharing Centre. Enable Network Discovery, File Sharing & Printer Sharing in the same window. It worked for me.
