December 8, 2009 Juan Ramon A thousand blessings for your instructions. Up until today I had no access to the Win 7 computer from the XP computer. I can get to it fine, but when the pop-up that talks about printer drivers i say continue and another pop-up comes up saying it can't find the xp driver file, I have set up the sharing on the Windows 7 machine with full access for everyone and even disabled the Windows 7 firewall.

However, trusted network in Mcafee speak still blocks shared folders, basically had to fiddle round in the advanced firewall settings and change the specific IP address from public network to trusted when i try to access the c drive i get access denied dut to "you may not have permissions" i have permissions setr up on the win 7 pc to allow I made sure that the windows 7 drivers where installed on the laptop and did as you instructed and it worked perfectly. The native firewall in Windows is usually intelligent enough to not screw this up, but a third-party, manually configured firewall might be.

Windows 7's error messages are not specific enough to allow a diagnosis. Regarding the procedure, am I missing something or is there no point at which any folders are shared in the first place ? What happens to all of the saved passwords in the Microsoft Edge browser? However, I still cannot get Win 7 to see my XPs on the network.

Both can access the internet. Please refer to maxcat's post under Sevenslade - it's a regedt32 fix that worked for me. Turn off the firewall on both computers while doing this, it will just make it easier in the long run. December 5, 2009 Laura Thank you!
