Setting Security and Sharing Properties from Windows 7 to Network and Map Drives with Windows XP

Leave it to Microsoft to screw up network communications that has worked for over 15 years. Windows 7 (Home Edition and perhaps other versions) allow you to map and access Windows XP PC hard drives and folders but not vice versa. When you try to access a Win 7 PC root drive or folder you get the message "access denied". I have seen a number of so called fixes on this site and others for this problem, but NONE OF THEM WORKED! Many of these fixes involve changes to the WIN 7 PC's registry that have nothing to do with the problem. I spent about 6 hours to figure out the fix for this problem. I posted a simple tutorial on U TUBE that will show you exactly how to fix this problem in less than 20 mouse clicks....Kim

You can also use Registry Mechanic that provides optimization tools simple to use to accelerate and improve the stability of your PC Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. Whatever your level, Registry Mechanic cleans , repairs and optimizes the Windows registry safely and performs an automatic backup of changes for later retrieval.
