    I'm using 2 Win Xp Home edition computers. The one computer can connect to the other fine, and can see whatever documents i shared off that computer. The other computer however, when i try to connect in network it says Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this time.

    Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

    If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

    Download the following and install it

    Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

    after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

    Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

    net user guest /active:yes
    ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
    ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

    The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

    Hopefully the first suggestion will work. See it posted a lot around the Internet (even on this forum two years ago) exactly like that so it has helped.

    If not you might also might try a registry edit.

    Run REGEDIT
    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
    Make sure the entry "restrictanonymous" is set to 0

    This has fixed this problem in a number of cases, but not all cases. :)
