All of that changed. Now we get a message when trying to save the file. "You do not have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission".
I have given the entire "MY Documents" sharing permission to everyone. Norton can cause you many problems related to sharing if it's not set up correctly.
I have checked everything. I have looked over all kinds of forums and nothing has worked.
I am to the point of doing a complete reinstall of Windows 7 on my Desktop. I have spent tens of hours on this.
You mentioned that you have a Home group set up for your network. The problem is that Vista may not work correctly in a Windows 7 Home group.
In general you would want to set up a Work group type of network after leaving the Home group.
There are ways to make the Home group work with different versions of Windows, the link below has a download that can show you how to set that up. Download: Windows 7 & HomeGroup: Downlevel Sharing - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
You may also need to allow for sharing through the Norton firewall. Norton can cause you many problems related to sharing if it's not set up correctly.
