    Sharing Permissions

    If have a few drives and folders shared through my home network and i have some issues with passwords. When i access my shares from another pc, it will not ask for a password even though i shared it with the standard sharing i i left the homegroup. I also deleted the "everyone" permission from the security and the share section of the drive/folder.

    You might want to check credential manager since if you set to remember credentials then the machine will automatically authenticate. OPTION TWO of this tutorial will show you how to remove stored credentials:
