C:\> net use Z: \\compname\share /user:administrator
The password or user name is invalid for \\compname\share.

Enter the password for 'administrator' to connect to 'compname':
System Error 1326 has occurred
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

Hi! I was having this exact same problem and I was beating my head
against the keyboard trying to solve this. Here's what I tried before
I found my solution:

- Disable the firewall
- Ensure that the share works on another comptuer
- Run 'secpol.msc' > Local Policies > Security Options > Network
Security: LAN Manager authentication level > Send LM & NTLM - use
NTLMv2 if negotiated

No avail! I could not get this working. But then I remembered! I just
reset my BIOS battery! My date was complelely wrong... I think I set
it to the year 2025 (just messing around). So setting the year back to
the current year (2009) made all the difference for me in this
scenario. Hope I save at least one soul out there in cyberspace!
