Windows 7: Windows 7 Network sharing problem

Windows 7 Network sharing problem

Hi Everyone,

I have few XP Pro PCs and a windows 7 Pro x64. The XP PCs can see and access the shared Windows 7 but the Windows 7 couldn't. Windows 7 can see the XPs but when i click on the XPPCs it said Windows Can't Access \\XP-pc. I click the Detail and it said Network Path Wasn't found. I tried to Diagnostics and it couldn't find the problem. It looks like firewall blocked to me but i disabled windows firewall and security center from windows services. XPPCs don't have any firewall. from Windows 7 i can ping those XPs. I enabled most of the services related to the network.

From the windows7 can't open the its shared folders either. it said the network path was not fould

Is there any one has the same problem?

Thank you
