Same result here. The firewall rules were missing on my machine, the Base Filtering Engine service was present in my services, but I also ran the fix above anyway and it worked. I can now share folders with no error!

Thanks to SolomonG and xmonkz :)

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

I'm happy for those that solved something, but that wasn't AndyMc's original problem.

Like AndyMc, I too installed a larger disk a couple of weeks ago and afterward found that I was no longer able to set my folders and printers to 'shared'. Those folders that were shared remained visible on my network but I could not add more. I could remove sharing, but then I could not reinstate it.

I'm writing here because I used Samsung's magician software to copy my old C drive onto my new one. I now suspect that this is the source of the sharing problem.

An error occured while trying to share Scans. Incorrect function

That ServiceRepair.exe utility worked like a charm! It reset all of the windows firewall rules/services and I was able to enable file sharing once again.

* This utility is highly recommended *
