I have five computers with Windows Xp installed. these PCs are connected to each other in a workgroup. I am using 192.1.1.X series of IP Addresses. When I try to connect to shared folder of other workgroup computer  by typing \\192.1.1.X\c$ i get a box with disabled user option. there is only guest user which i cannot change. so please if someone can help me , tell me how to access shared folder (\\192.X.X.X\c$ or \\192.X.X.X\d$) of another computer as Administrator or any other user. for more detail please see attached picture.

Try specifying the user you want to connect with from the command line, type:

net use \\192.1.1.44\ipc$ /user:Administrator

This will prompt you for the specified user's password and should allow you remote connectivity to shares.

this kind of baffles me however if I were you I would ensure that Simple File Transfer is turned off. Also I would turn off ICS/Windows Firewall. See if either of these help you

go through your security logs and maybe your system logs and see if there is an error when you try to connect, if so post it

The administrator passwords aren't blank by any chance?

I think you'll need to disable the local policy "Force Network Logons using Local Accounts to Authenticate as Guest"

Start > Run > Secpol.msc

Local Policies - Security Options

"Network access: Sharing and security for local accounts"

Also disable simple file sharing if it is enabled.
