Wouldn't this cause a security threath if you also share files over the internet? – Ivo Flipse Jul 28 '09 at 6:02
Everyone does not include Anonymous. (This may be changed in Group Policy Editor though.) – grawity Jul 28 '09 at 6:43

You do not need to edit any group policies. Read this tutorial and go to the Configure HomeGroup Connections section. How to Customize Network Sharing Settings in Windows 7

Most probably, your computer is set to "Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers" instead of letting Windows to manage homegroup connections.
