Enter Network Password prompt (annoying) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I open My Computer on Windows 7 and click a computer name (other than the local computer's) in the navigational pane (left) and instead of seeing the shared components of that computer, I get a prompt that says:

    Enter Network Password
    Enter your password to connect to: <selected computer name>

    The problem is, even though I am sure that I enter the correct login info that is used to access that computer, it doesnt get accepted. The prompt just displays anew.

    Any ideas?

  • Make sure you are using the proper Domain\UserName Password combination.
