Hi guys I am not a computer expert so I try to solve my troubles here on my own, but some help 'd be really very appreciated. I noticed that netlogon service won't start on my computer...can be it the reason why I can't get into this computer by my little network?(2 computers only) fact I am always prompted with an IPC$ password though both computers have exactly the same workgroup and same username & passwords...adsl connection through a router...well tanx since now for ur help...bye

I just peaked and my Net Logon service is not running and it's set to manual so I doubt that's a problem.

The username/password request when attempting to connect to a share on a remote machine is normal. You can make that go away by creating a user account on the target machine using the credentials you use to logon to the other machine at bootup.


user: jsmith
password: password

user: jims
password: password

On PC1 you would create a user account:
user: jims
password: password

You would add that account to whichever share(s) you will want to access from PC2 and give appropriate permissions. Once you've done that, when you go logon to PC2 and then connect to the share on PC1, you will get access to the folder without being prompted for credentials.

Hi Curt 1st of all thanx a lot for ur time but if u read better my question I already mentioned that both computers have already the same username and same passwords, but anyway I already tried to change permissions on the shared folders but it won't change also when I am logged in as administrator. Anyway last night I noticed that in many service applications on the (log on tab) there are passwords that I never created, I believe that the original prob. is just in 1 of these services but I don't know the password, It's a new computer so who preinstalled windows created those pwds I believe...Anyway any advice is appreciated, thanx again...bye
