your running a workgroup? You could create a admin user on pc1 then give that user permission on that folder. Then try use those credentials.

If you want it not to ask and if you have win7. Go to control panel then networking then advanced. Youll see password protected sharing try that.

Click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “You try to connect to a share but are asked for a Username/Password

Are you using the "administrator" account on all the other machines?

If you're using an account on the PC's that you're connecting from that is already on the PC you're connecting to, you won't be asked for credentials (having supplied them already when you logged in on the box you're connecting from).

Here's the thing. Just using the 'administrator' account isn't enough in and of itself. The administrator account on all PC's must use the exact same password in order to avoid the credential request.

So, if the password on the remote system was different, even if it was the same 'administrator' account, you'd get asked to login to the share.

Other than that, I don't know what to tell you. If it was working and then stopped after you used gpedit, then you know it was something you did at that point that caused the change. In that case, only you know what you did, and only you can undo it.

Open it up, undo whatever changes you made. Save and close it.

You know, it's people like this mostafa_b that make me wonder why I keep coming back in here and trying to help.

My guide details adding a user account to the target PC in clear, simple terms. Then in response #5 I give another explanation about sharing and credentials.

I guess my mistake was using words of greater than one syllable............
