Windows 7: Can access folders elsewhere w/W7; cant access W7 from elsewhere

Got the zip - thanks so much.

I am stuck here:

Problem Step 9: (06/06/2013 19:21:20) User left click on "Predefined: (radio button)" in "New Inbound Rule Wizard"

That radio button is greyed out.

--edit--

Did some searching, and found someone who said the solution was to import this registry branch:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SharedAccess

Import what, tho?

--edit #2--

Some more searching reveals this:

cmd prompt > netsh firewall reset

That gives me a "deprecated" message, and tells me to use netsh advfirewall reset instead. Doing so results in the cmd prompt giving me:

An unrecoverable Windows Firewall error <0x3> occurred.

I have seen some people say that they see this problem was due to some Kapernsky sw... I have nothing of the sort. Is it possible Malwarebytes is doing something here? Cant find anything in the options/prefs.

You have to export the key and it's values from another working machine then import the registry key and it's values to the problem machine according to the link at the bottom of the page.

[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SharedAccess\Defaults\FirewallPolicy\FirewallRules]

This guy was running Malware bytes as well, he solved it by importing the registry key and it's values from another Windows 7 Ultimate machine "second link".
Can't turn on file sharing or network discovery - Windows 7

This link talks about importing the registry key for the firewall values.

What happened to my "Predefined rules" in Windows Firewall? How can I get them back? - Super User

Ok, got the registry key and it's values from a friend's computer. All seems to be ok. I can turn the fwall on, I can turn on network discovery, and I can see my W7 machine from my other 2 comps.

Am I set, or do I need to do anything else?

Thanks for the help!

Sounds like importing those registry values worked, good thinking on getting them from a friends computer.
