In order to avoid having us suggest things you've already tried, please tell us exactly what you have done already.

Go to "Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment", then double-click on "Access this computer from the network" and add the user(s) you want to give access to this computer.
