hi Rahere tried refresh and turned oof all pc's rebooted when go into windows explorer and click on any of the shares that are there is a login box appears for that share ? thanks Chippy

So your Shares are not accessible except by password and that's close to what you wanted I think.

It's a guess bu have you tried deleting the share icons?

hello again Rahere yes i have tried to delete them but no joy, none of my pc's have a password as there is only one name on each and the guest account is off so why is the shares looking for a password i have never had this before and how can i fx this i would like to set my network up again but the other shares may conflict thanks Chippy

The password is probably your network password.

Perhaps you could just turn off the router and try deleting the shares on each computer before you reinstall the network
