    I don't know how but when I changed my laptop network from cable to wireless this share stopped working.

    This is the scenario:

    Machine 1:
    PC
    Windows XP
    User "Administrador" (the Administrator account for brazilian Windows)

    Machine 2:
    Laptop
    Windows Vista
    User "Wesley"
    Shared the whole driver D, only accessible by user "Wesley" (removed "Everyone")

    The problem is that my Windows XP does not ask for a password before trying to open the "D" share, it just says "Access Denied". Of course, if I add "Everyone" again, it works, but I guess you can see I don't want this.

    I've created an account named "Wesley" on my Windows XP to test if it would work, and it did, but all my stuff is on the "Administrador" account.

    Is there any way I could get the login window under the share, and not the access denined?

    You use the built-in Admin account for your day to day work?

    Yes, but only at Windows XP.
