Windows 7: Windows Firewall Blocking Media Sharing

Windows Firewall Blocking Media Sharing

Over the weekend I had the unfortunate luck of getting the FBI Moneypak virus. I downloaded MalwareBytes to get rid of it but now my Windows Firewall is blocking my media sharing. I'm not sure if MalwareBytes has anything to do with but that's the last thing I installed on this pc. I tried running Windows Troubleshooter and it finds the issue but always fails to fix the problem. I don't know what's going on or how to fix it. Someone please help me.

I seemed to have fixed the issue. Apparently the virus changed the settings in Windows Firewall and erased all of the predefined rules. I have no idea what else this virus manipulated...hopefully nothing too detrimental. Does anyone have any experience with this virus? I'd like to know what else I need to check up to make sure it's working as intended. Thank you in advance.
