Shared Folders Still Requiring Password When Being Accessed

Hey Everyone,
How's it going? I have two house mates, and all three of us are running Windows XP. For some reason, they can see and access the folders that I share, but both of their computers listed in the Network Connections > Microsoft Windows Network > Workgroup area require passwords for some reason. How can we access each others' computers?
Thanks in advance,
-=MaStA ViC

Have you disabled any firewalls to test the connections.

Are you using Simple Sharing or Advanced?

On each PC goto Folder Options>View> and check to use simple file sharing.

Do this on all and then give it a try.
