Unable to browse to "C$" on new Windows Server 2012

I physically have a new Server 2012 machine, standard version of OS. It's running Hyper-V. I have created a new VM that's also running Server 2012 Standard.
I can browse to shares on the new VM with no issues. I cannot browse to the C$ or D$ of the new VM. I have tried multiple admin accounts with no luck. It just comes back to the credentials screen and says "access denied" at the bottom.
I have even went as far as granting "everyone" full access to the root of the C: as a test and it still fails with "access denied".
Nothing architecturally has changed over the network or firewall, just the introduction of the new server 2012 machine.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Are the drives listed as removable drives?

Is this using a domain account or a local computer account on the 2012 VM?
It could be that you need to disable Remote UAC.

If it is non domain account then it can be disabled by default..

It refers to vista and future windows versions.

@DMTechGroup
That is exactly the same fix but in a different article.  Please see what others have posted before posting yourself to save duplication.

@Neilsr - you are more than welcome to have the points.. I don't have time to verify what all others put as responses.  I found a solution, verified your KB and mine had different #s and would let the author decide if or which is the best answer for him.  My goal is to help provide a possible solution, which I have done.

Disabling the remote UAC was the fix. Thanks for the fast reply!
