    I have a Vista laptop and an XP desktop asn am having trouble sharing files.
    I have followed the advice from previous threads with no luck. I have set up
    a new workgroup, turned off the firewalls, turned off the password
    protection, and can see the other folder, but I am still not allowed!

    Any idea?

    Instead of turning off password protection, try creating identical user
    accounts and passwords on both machines. If you wish a machine to boot
    directly to the Desktop (into one particular user's account) for
    convenience, you can do this. The instructions at this link work for
    both XP and Vista:
