I switched my desktop computer to Windows 8 (upgrade from Windows 7 Pro); the upgrade ran well.
However, now my Laptop, which is a Lenovo Windows 7 ultimate machine, can no longer connect to the Windows 8 machine network (although the Windows 8 machine can see the laptop and communicate with it on the network).
I cannot upgrade the Laptop to Windows 8 yet because I have certain software running on it that is not yet supported by Windows 8.

Do you mean you can't connect to the windows 8 machine? Usually this is because the computers don't have the same userid and password. When you try to connect what happens?

You are probably correct; I had to change my password on the Windows 8 machine.
I can't find the place on the Windows 7 machine in which to change my login defaults to the network.
