How can I find out a password in Windows Vista needed to network two computers?

polly January 11, 2012

I want to network computer 2 to computer 1. Computer 1 asks for password, which I do not know. As I recall, no password was set. Neither do I have Windows Vista disc with me.

I would be grateful if you can tell me where I can find password on Windows Vista. Thank you.

    Hello, can you explain a little bit more about your setup?  Include operating systems involved, whatever steps you have tried, what is it that you are expecting to accomplish, etc. 

    Check your settings for Network and sharing to make sure that password protected sharing option is not selected in computer 1.

    perhaps you can try the following
    1) go to Run and type gpedit.msc then launchit
    2) Then Go to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options
    3) Double click on Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only
    Disable this option
