Problem Solved!

10 Months passed...
if you run Windows 7 and your own firewall.... you MUST turn WINDOWS FIREWALL ON to be able to share the printer.(did not cause any trouble with my ESET Smart Security 4.)
Now it works as it supposed to almost a year ago. Accessible from all the computers on the network.
