    Hello...

    I am having issues accessing my other computer via a local business network. On my Win 7 laptop, I can see my other computer, but cannot access it because I get a Windows Security Pop-up asking to "Enter Network Password". When I first registared my laptop to the network, I had no issues. But all of the sudden this pop up shows up and now I can not acess the other computer. Any ideas how to fix this issue?

    Thanks!!!:(

    I don't understand your environment. Please explain the "local business network."

    Working on a Office PC?
    Seems lack of administrative privilages and/or lack of other permissions.
    Please contact the Network Administrator of your Business Connection.
    The problem is that the computer you are trying to connect is password protected by the user or either by the admin.
    Are you able to connect to other PC on the same network?

    OK, I am the Admin. for all of my computers on my network. Currently the issue I have 2 computers on the network, 1 win 2000 & 1 Win 7. They are both registared to a workgroup named X. Anyway, up until a week or so ago, everything was working fine. Now, however, I can not go from the W2 computer to access the Win2000 computer files or printer. Everytime I try to access, I get a windows security pop-up asking "Enter Network Password". I checked my setting and I do not have any password requirements.
