Windows cannot access pc

So I am getting this every time I am trying to access my media box over the network, its a new install of Vista so I am thinking I have missed something here.
The account on the media PC has no password and Network discovery / file sharing / public folder sharing are all enabled in network and sharing center with the other 3 disabled.
Firewalls off and there's no other security software installed.
Ideas?

Re: Windows cannot access pc

Guessing vista is on the host/server machine? Try enabling secpol.msc > Local Policies > Security Options > Network Access: Let everyone permissions apply to anonymous users
