Windows 7 Can Not Access Windows XP Shared Folders

The error is “windows security enter network password”, no matter what password you enter you will not be able to connect to your Windows XP machine from your Windows 7 PC.

The way that I fixed the problem was to open the local security settings by going to the run box and typing “secpol.msc” then going to local policies, security options, then network security: LAN Manager authentication level, you will select the second one on the drop-down menu with NTLMv2, Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated. This is what fixed the problem for me.
