    I have a network set up between a Hp laptop and a gateway desktop. Both are running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. Everything was running great until "I believe" my wife hit the remember me box when logging onto my desktop to look at some files we have shared. Now our laptop logs on automatically everytime. Here I think maybe an issue. When we logon to her laptop the username is owner-pc with no password. While logged on as the above, she would click on my computer under network. The password box would come up and she would enter a differnt username and password to get to the shared files on my computer. Anyway, after she hit the remember me box the only way I could get to the shared files were to enable the guest account. I found out through admin tools/computer management under the control panel, that my computer was seeing her but the username was guest. That is why I enabled the guest account and set rights so she could see the shared files. With that being said, I want her to login. How do I get the login box back. I have already tried to go to the stored usernames and passwords tool and there is nothing there. Please Help
