Hi there, an error 5 is not a credential issue.  It sounds more like a general Windows security problem.

Can you tell us what the main OS's the remote PCs have that you're trying to scan?  Are they mostly Windows 7?

Also, what happens if you try to visit one of those PCs using Windows Explorer with the PC you're scanning from?  As in "\\ComputerName"
