I'm using 2 Win Xp Home edition computers. The one computer can connect to the other fine, and can see whatever documents i shared off that computer. The other computer however, when i try to connect in network it says Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this time. In an earlier thread u guys described how to fix this, but ur method only works for XP Pro because Home Edition doesn't have Local Security Settings option under adm tools. I tried using registry fix "[HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa].restrictanonymous to zero (0)." and set it to zero but that doesn't work. Please any help that you could give would be much appreciated

I am running 2 computers with win xp Home edition, using microsoft file sharing too network. I can access the other computer in the network from my main comp, but when i get on the other computer, i get this logon message when i try to access main comp "Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" I've made my account names the same, with same password, enabled guests accounts, tried the registry fix suggested in the last thread [HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa].restrictanonymous to zero (0)
to no avail. The fixed used in last thread doesn't work for XP home and only XP Pro. Any help would be much appreciated

do both computers have the same login information (username and password)? If not add a user on the machine that you're trying to connect to to match the one you're connecting from. Also right click on the folder you are sharing and check the permisions.

lucky me, i found the answer to my own question, but decided to post it just in case anyone else out there is having same problem with XP home. Thank u for ur help

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

Well... I'm having the same problem w/ a customers machine. Win XP home edition... This fix has not worked so far. Although I was NOT able to get the second two commands listed above to work. Only the first one.

I've also tried the MS web page suggestions to uninstall & re-install file/print sharing to no avail.

The weird thing is this was working until a few days ago. However the machine was VERY infected w/ adware, and hijacking cr..p. It appears I have cleaned all of that off now but the network share issue really needs to be resolved.

So... any ideas are more than welcome. Thanks in advance!

I tried this command tool and now I just get "Access is Denied" instead of "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer "

Here is what worked for me to eliminate this error:

This policy needs to be set to remove the "Guest" account.
Otherwise, you get an error:
"Login failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"

Local Policies->User Rights Assignment
Deny access to this computer from the network
*S-1-5-21-3....
Guest
Support_3889...
Support_fddfa90

Once I did that, everything worked. That was the only change I had to make.

I have the same problem as the others posted above.

You suggested 'Local Policies->User Rights Assignment' but there is no 'Local Policies' choice in Administrative Tools (XP home). What am I missing?

A client of mine has a similar problem but I think she has been "hacked". Her PC refuses to let me logon (Local policy does not permit ...) and I cannot therefore get into the machine at all to fix the problem. I suspect a hacker has got in through terminal services and messed up the local policy settings. The machine is running XP Home. The only solution so far is to install a second version of WinXP and reinstall everything else - painful. If anybody out there has a better solution, I'd really appreciate it! Incidentally, I've tried opening in safe mode, but I still get turned back at the point of login.

Many thanks

I have applied the commands below and it will work for about an hour and then stop working again. Please let me know there is anything I need to do after I apply the commands. Thanks.

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

If it works, then stops working, I'd suspect some other issue or application changing settings. Have you done malware/spyware scans?

I have scanned my server with 2 different antivirus and 2 spyware apps and neither has found anything. If I leave the shared folder (on server) open on my pc the connection does not drop at all. It only gives me the "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" if I have the folder closed for an hour or so.
