So I have 2 computers who have been in the same homegroup and everything has been great.  But now, when I try to access one of the computers it wants a username and password.  I've never run into this before.

Any ideas?

Did the network type on either PC change from a Home network to anything else?

They are both still "Home".  1 computer sees the other with no password but the other wants a UN/PW.

I'm sorry, I missed your posting.....
Have you tried changing your homegroup password? Please note that the article says that every PC must be awake and you must then immediately enter the new password on every PC: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Change-a-homegroup-password
