I would like to remote desktop to my MAC Maverick OS X 10.9.2 from my Windows 7 laptop. I tried using putty with SSH to connect to my MAC and entered the IP address of my computer, but I am getting a message stating that it cannot make a connection. I have enabled remote login on my MAC.

When you allowed remote login, did you allow access for all users?

Have you tried pinging the IP address to make sure you can reach the IP address?

I didn't allow for all users, but I did allow it for myself.

I tried pinging it just now and I did get a response.

I switched it to allow "all users" but when I tried to SSH just now, I get the message, "Access denied" when I tried to login.

That suggest that you may have typed in an incorrect password or account name.  Did you correctly type in the short user account name?

In putty, you can use NAME@IP_ADDRESS for the login.  If you just use the IP address, it should open up a terminal that prompts you for your account name, then your password.

That's what happened, a terminal window appeared and I entered my login first followed by my password. But after I entered my password, I obtained a message saying, "Access denied".

Again that suggests that you've typed an incorrect account name or an incorrect password or both.  Did you use the short login name?  

If you open a Terminal.app on OSX, can you ssh to your account?  You can find Terminal.app in /Applications/Utilities/

When you've opened Terminal.app, run the following on the command line.

ssh NAME@IP_ADDRESS

  or

ssh NAME@localhost

It should prompt you for a password.  If you're failing there, then you've entered an incorrect username or password to log in.

I still couldn't get it to work. Finally, I used Cisco Team Viewer and was able to log in that way.
