    What i am trying to do here is have an open share of the root to a drive its self. there are 2 drives i want to share for the network so anyone who is on our wifi or hooks up to the network physicaly can access these without a user name or anything... it was simple in vista and lower but for some reason with windows 7 i do not have permission to access the share. any idea???

    Right click the drive and select "share with" and select what group you want to share with.

    You then may have to go into advanced sharing options.
