Is one a server?  You need one to validate your password.

I would assume that you want to copy from one machine to another and both being clients.

In the clients for microsoft networks option in networking.
Be members of the same workgroup.
Make sure you are not using the "windows logon" option.

Also in the control panel. Load  USERS and edit your profile so that you need a password.

Are the machines seeing each other?
If not make Netbeui the default. add it if you have to.
Make file/printer options available and share drives.

It normally takes upto a minute for both machines to see each other due to the way Netbeui works but you can use the find computer option to make it faster and then create a shortcut.

Goodluck

Regards

I have tried all of this netmage and in case I missed someting I have tried everything you have asked me to try.  Windows is still booting in to its GUI without asking for a password.  I have to log off and then log in as myself.

In the Control Panel - Passwords - User Profiles  - check that you select "Users can customise .... " and click the bottom two click buttons in the User Profile Settings

When Windows was first installed did it ask for a Login?

Do a File Search for *.pwd

Delete the one that has your first login name and then re-boot. You should get the login window which you should type your name and password you want. From then on you "Should" get the login screen.
