  Don't connect to a computer with Windows 7 (with shares files/folders)

Status in Linux Mint:

Bug description:
  Since when its updated Samba from version 4.1.6 to 4.3.8, my computer with Linux Mint 17.3 x64 - Cinnamon (based on Ubuntu 14.04, kernel 3.19.58) (client) can no longer connect to another computer (host), where Windows 7 is installed (with shares files/folders) kept asking password connection. Say that Windows 7 computer don't has user password protection, and it has turn off password protected sharing for the directories and files shared, (and with HomeGroup Connections turn off in Windows 7).
  Please very much to resolve urgently problem with Samba ver. 4.3.8, which, from my point of view, was programmed by an incompetent in programming.
  I apologize for my inadequate language, but I am very angry with this problem and I urgently need a solution for connecting to Windows 7 (without user password).
  I wait a solution in this regard. (I'm beginner in Linux.)

  Thank you for understanding.

  Sorry for my poor English.
