I have a desktop computer connected by ethernet (VISTA) and a Windows7 laptop by wireless. I am trying to share folders have got the share saying no passwords and yet when I click on a folder it asks for user name and password, no passwords have been set to open either computers. Any ideas please

You may have set up password protected sharing.

Have a look at this

It may help.
