sharing problem

Hi everione

I have a sharing problem that I can't find any salution for. I have 3 pc, PC1 has win 7, PC2 has win 7 and PC3 has Win xp. All 3 PC are connected to wireless router.

On PC3 do I have shared folders and shared printer. I can access all folders and connect the printer from PC1 and do all I net to do. PC2 can ping PC3 but can't access network path.

Do you have any idea what is wrong?

PS. Sorry for my spelling.

First, uninstall AVG and enable the default Windows firewall. Enable file and printer sharing on all three computers. Reboot all computers and see if you can now share.
