The other PC has disabled "Simple File Sharing" and perhaps the guest account in Policy. It might have a password on the Guest
account, also. One solution is an identical ID/password on both.

If the network is set up correctly, you shouldn't HAVE to "log on" to see
the shared folders, they should be automatically available. Have you run the
New Network wizard on both machines?
