    Accepted Solution

    That might be caused of remote machine "Local Security Policy" setting. Open the remote machine "Local Security Policy" snap-ins. Expand "Local Policies" then click on "Security Options", and look for "Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts". If it is set to "Guest only - local users authenticate as Guests" to "Classic - local users authenticate as themselves". You might need to logoff your account and relogin.
