    I have forgotten how, but I want to be able to connect to my sisters computer without having to enter her password. I have tried:
    *removing the pass and it says blank passwords aren't allowed.
    *I have allowed it to autologin with her password into windows, doesn't make a diff through network though.
    *Simple sharing is off,
    *guest is on,
    *I have also added my name to her user list in control panel. :/

    Help please

    What to do? :D

    If you establish an account with your name and password that has the proper rights on her computer, you should be able to connect without any passwords. Oh, for XP-Home, disable simple sharing too.
