How to disable username & password network pc

Postby guest » Mon Oct 24, 2011 2:48 pm

I have a problem with my network computers. The computers have shared folders. Having configured with file sharing, I wanted this computers to communicate well in my LAN. I can view this computers on my network places but when I access it, username and password box appear. I am only having a small network and don't have any file server. All of this computers are running with Windows XP Pro.

I have found a way to disable the nagging password box in Windows 7 (probably Vista too).
1. Click Start
2. Under you user picture, right click Network
3. Choose properties (this opens Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center)
4. Click Choose homegroup and sharing options in the lower list (this opens Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Homegroup)
5. Click Change advanced sharing settings... (this opens Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings)
6. The setting right before the last one is: Password protected sharing!
7. Choose Turn off password protected sharing and you are good to go without any restarts and stuff.

Bonus: A quicker way: Type "advanced share" and choose Manage advanced sharing settings
(this will guide you to step 5.)

Nice post about how to fix it one WINDOWS 7. But the problem we are all having is on Windows XP PCs, No Windows 7 anywhere on the network, and still no fixes. Anyone got a real solution instead of just guesses?
