    I have a laptop with Vista plus a desktop with XP Pro x64 on a home network. Everything works fine accept the desktop can't access the shared folders on the second user account of the laptop. The administrative account on the laptop shares fine. The second account is a standard account. Nothing shows up in the shared folder list for that account.

    On the desktop it shows the second user folder of the laptop as being shared but when I click on it I get an error message saying I don't have permission to access it. The other shared folders work right.

    I'm still pretty inexperienced with Vista so maybe there is something I forgot to do when setting this up.

    I found a fix for this. You have to add Everyone in the People to share with settings.
