Try making a user on the 2nd PC with the EXACT SAME username & password as what you are using to log into the first PC. If it doesnt have a password, give it one!

well are they in the same workgroup?? if so you could always just go to the file permissions and make a specific setting for the other user(takes time and is ultimately a last resort if no other solution is found)

What version of Windows are you using?

If you're networking through a router you need straight network cable, not crossover, then all will be well
