What are you saying?

Did you install the printer software on the 2nd computer as Mousearoma suggested?

At what stage are you getting the message, "Credentials overwrite but it won't overwrite"?

Try this, on the 2nd computer delete the printer. Reboot the 2nd computer and when Windows is loaded re-install the printer software.

Right click the printer icon in Start > Printers & faxes,select "Sharing". Select the option to share this printer and give it a name.

In the 1st computer right click the printer icon, select sharing and ensure you are sharing the same printer name.

You have given no details of your network, so I assume both computers run Windows XP. If not, there may be more settings to change on the non-XP computer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
