    Hello,

    I am trying to access my desktop ( \\lieb ) but when I type \\lieb in the run box I get the message:

    I know that the Local Security Settings (policy file) has been messed around on \\lieb.

    Does anyone know what setting within the policy file controls this, and gives me this message?

    Edit: The same message appears when I try to access this computer from the computer \\lieb. Whats going on?


    Thanks,

    lieb39

    Found out the problem. On both computers there are no passwords to login, and the user names are both daniel. when the 2 try to connect they send the username daniel with no password first, before asking me anything and than the computer says, yes, that is a right account, but no password. you need to have a password to access network drives. so is there a fix?
