I should of posted more info but i deleted the homegroup network i set up,because i read you didnt need it to share files between the computers and it wasnt helping me any i still can access my xp files from 7 but not vise versa unless i put it in a public folder
However i do have it set to no password n i have share files enabled.hopfully milhouses method will work

also have you downloaded the LLTD pack (should come with sp3)

Download details: Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder (KB922120)
