I came across your thread on the LimeTech forum.  Johnathan and Frank both gave good advice. The only thing is Frank was trying to isolate your problem without addressing your security issues.  I think Johnathan hit the nail on the head.  In the end it's up to you but I don't see how adding a user for your Win 7 machine would hurt to try?  Once you use Windows Credential Manager to save the login, you can bet Tower will show up in your network without you having to type it in.
My problem has now evolved... I decided to reinstall Win 7 again because after doing the changes I could no longer do Windows update for some reason. Now i have reinstalled Win 7 Pro 3 times and I still can not do any updates with Windows Updater. :( I need to do Windows Updates to allow me to install my Home Automation software too. I have even tried it with my pc directly plugged into my router. Everything works fine in the OS including internet, but as soon as I try to do a update... it appears to freeze. My Windows will work fine, but Windows update is constantly looking for the updates, and even after several hours has not resulted in anything...just looking for updates. I have no anti virus installed, and i did a format of the SSD when I did the install. This is very frustrating.

Well apparently Microsoft wants everyone to move to Windows 10 so they are making it more difficult to install Windows 7. I have used my same install disc since i bought it 3 years ago, and i reinstall windows once or twice a year without any problems either. This time was a nightmare, and I noticed that the problems started for others after they released Windows 10!
I tried numerous solutions to this problem(none of which worked)...until I found this info which I followed and it is downloading updates again!

"1. Disable Windows Updates (tell it to never check for updates).
2. Reboot.
3. Download and install Internet Explorer 11.
4. Download update KB3102810 and place it on your desktop (make sure you get the correct one, 64 bit or 32 (X86) bit). Place on your desktop.
5. Reboot.
6. Go into Computer Management (right click on Computer in Start Menu) and select Services.
7. Stop Windows Update service.
8. Start Menu, Computer, C: drive, Windows, delete the entire Software Distribution folder.
9. Double click on update KB3102810 and let it install.
10: Reboot (this will turn update service back on).
11. Go into Windows Updates and check for updates. Give it about an hour, it may take less time but be patient. It will start working.
12. After installing your updates, you can turn Windows Update automatic check for updates back on if you like."

Ok, once your updates finish, try creating a user in UnRAID and use those login credentials from Win 7.  Go ahead and click the remember credentials checkbox.  Let me know.

Will do...right now i have UnRaid as NOT Local server, For some reason Openelec/Kodi is the server again. I originally thought the update problem was because of UnRaid being the server, but now i know it was a Microsoft problem.

Ron,

FWIW, I have WHS 1.1 w/PP3.  On Win7 Pro and now Win10 Pro, sometimes File Exporer sees my WHS and sometimes it doesn't.  I gave up trying to make it see my WHS 100% of the time.  I just type in \\whs_server_name into File Explorer and it remains sticky for a while.  On an earlier version of Win7 Pro, it did not seem to be an issue.  I expect MS made a change in Win7 (for the worse) which they migrated to Win10.  Just wanted to let you know you're not alone.

Thanks, if it wasn't for certain apps I have that need to be on Windows...I would go back to Linux. I might even try them on a virtual Windows in Linux in the near future.

Do you also have yours set to public or is it setup with a user account (i.e. username and password)?

Set up with username/password.  The user accounts on the WHS are the same username/password as the Win10 Pro client logins.  So if I'm logged into WIn10 as kokishin, then I don't have to supply my login credentials to access WHS.  Same for Mrs kokishin.

I just read on the LT forum that other users are reporting issues with accessing their shares on Win 10 with 6.2.4. What I found most interesting though was BRiT's post that he has no issues but has username and passwords setup:

It's post #98 here:

I have decided that since I only use Windows to copy files from drive to NAS, or for deleting... I will just do mapping since speed is not as important for this. I will go in and do passwords for my drives though.

I also decided now is the time to upgrade my Netgear 8-10 port switches to Cisco 18-20 port switches. I am thinking that having all SG200, and SG300 switches is best (same manufacturer), as this should make it easier to integrate as a full system. I might even look for a Cisco Router, and just get a Wifi unit separately. I am not sure on the Cisco Routers though as i have heard some Cisco products are a pain to get working properly. Any feedback?

I like the Linksys line of wireless routers.  Never had any issues and they're as good as the Cisco line imho.

I have a Cisco Business class switch (SG200-26) in our HT, we will have a Cisco SG200-18 in our LR, and a SG300-20 where our Netgear router is. The guy I bought the SG300 from is also sending me a Cisco 890 router too. I have zero experience with the Cisco Routers, and i hope it is not difficult to configure. I will most likely get rid of the Netgear R7000, and get a WIFI extender for our WIFI. The SG300 is a managed switch which I have heard will allow internal network routing, but cannot replace a regular router...don't understand that. I am hoping that the Cisco router will allow better speed than the Netgear does.

The new (to me switches, and routers) are all used so i got a pretty good deal IMO on them vs buying BNIB like I did my first SG200.
