3-Click the advanced button.
4-Click the WINS tab.

Hope it helps!

goto network -> network and sharing center (at top)

turn off password protected sharing

that fixed my problem with getting to a folder on vista from an xp machine.

note: this is the most secure thing you can do so make sure your network is pretty secure. As long as your behind a pretty good firewall you should be okay for say home or small office use
