    When on my Win98 laptop I can See the vista PC on the network but when I
    click on the vista PC (to get to the shared folders) I am asked for a
    password. I never set up any password on the vista machine.
    I also have an XP which can get to the shared folders of the Vista PC
    without having to supply a password.

    Any Help appreciated

    Try just hitting the Enter key when asked for a password.

  3. I'm sorry, but it isn't possible to access Vista's shared folders from
    Win98 (or 95 or Me). Vista only supports sharing with Windows 2000
    and later versions.
