I myself, have XP & 7 so am not that familiar with 8.
Using Team Viewer to access her machine I got her to click on networking & sharing. On my Win 7 I am in a home network but in her Win 8 hers is described as private. I have never seen that before, is that unique to Win 8? The other issue is that I bought this laptop as her Win 7 machine has problems with powering up & therefore is left on continuously until a repair can be carried out.
These two machines are side by side. I got her to open computer on Win 8 & she received a prompt to enter the password for her HP machine, (the other one) She will never need to access that machine so is there a way of removing that one?
They are both used for Internet access & wish to keep it like that but not to gain access to the machine that has a fault. I am not sure if I should make myself clearer but to be honest I don’t know how else to describe it.
