Windows 8.1 Pro Security Nightmare

Newbie here. Just  upgraded(?) to W8 from W7 and no security setting, workaround, option change or user ID and password combination will get me into my shared drive. Sharing and streaming is setup as required. Can’t get by the NetUser ID & Net Password screen. Can I assume there members here who are W8 users? If so, can you help?
