I am just setting up windows 8.1. I have a apple tv with xbmc. I am trying to connect my pc to it. But it keeps asking for a password when clicking on the folder I want. I have password protection off and have permissions set to everyone read only. Same as I did in windows 7. But it keeps asking for a password. I dont have a homegroup setup.

Any help be appreciated.
