Next thing is you need to add user not only activationg the allow access, you need to add the user on the shared folder, you are only using workgroups, unlike domain networks, you just have to give them permission.

Tips for a great answer:
If your Windows PC has is equipped with an Ethernet port, you can
connect your PC and Macintosh using an Ethernet cable. By doing this,
you are creating a small local network, consisting of just the two
computers. Set up your Windows PC by turning on File Sharing. Refer to
the instructions that came with your Windows PC if you're not sure how
to do this.
To locate and connect to the Windows
computer, you can use the sidebar in a Finder window. You need to know
the workgroup name for the computer and the network name (called the
"computer name") for the computer. To connect to the computer, you also
need a user name and password and the name of the shared folder you want
to access. If you don't have this information, contact the person who
owns the computer or your network administrator.
If you cannot locate the Windows
computer in the Network browser, you may be able to connect to it using
the Connect To Server dialog in the Finder.
Make sure the Internet Connection
Firewall is turned off, or if it's on make sure TCP port 445 is open to
allow sharing connections.
To connect you Mac and Windows computers:
In the Finder, choose Go > "Connect to Server."
Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:
Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user
name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.
