Windows 7: How Manage LAN Sharing

How Manage LAN Sharing

Hi there.

I have small LAN network, 12 PCs connected with 2 switchs and shared internet connection between them.

My problem is :
I want PC 1 and PC 2 FULL SHARING ALL THE DRIVES on both PCs, but only selected for PC 3 ad PC 4 only.
As long as I knew, within one network with the same local IP address the other PCs is able to view and edit the shared drives. CMIIW please.

My questions :
1. How to manage the shared PC (PC 1 and 2) so it can only be viewed by the selected PC (PC 3 and 4 only) and the other PC unable to connect or view the shared drives? But still the PC 1 and 2 get the shared internet connection.
2. Is there using trick or maybe using third party apps to manage it?

Thats all.
I'm waiting for the reply.

Thank you.
Big regards.
