Wins 7 connection to Macbook Pro

#1
Hi, I used to be able to connect my Windows XP pc to my macbook wirelessly. I now have a new pc with Windows 7, and cant seem to connect from windows 7 to my macbook as before. I can now see my macbook in network folder, but the password etc dont work, and I have not changed anything on my Mac?
Thanks

Make sure when you attempt the connection that, if you have the opportunity to choose "other user" choose that, in either case when you enter the username and password, use the following format.
machinename\username and password
that would be TheNameOfTheMacBook\UsernameOnThatMacBook and then ThePasswordForThatUserNameOnTheMacBook
try that and see if it helps, keep us posted
