Windows 7: Shared Folders Over The Network

Shared Folders Over The Network

Hello people, Win7 is running flawlessly except I have this one problem. When I go to install ANY anti-virus software it kills my ability to access the shared files and folders from my Win7 machine. I uninstall the AV and all is back to normal.

Is there something I am missing or doing wrong? Any advice would be 'preicated.

Hello LVL50RR9,

Sounds more likely to be a firewall issue rather than an AV issue. are you trying to install an AV suite that contains a firewall?

If so you need to open the required ports on the W7 PC to allow file sharing.

I normally open ports 135 - 138 and 445 for win 7 - how you do this depends on the firewall involved

hope this helps

Thanks for the fast reply. I should have been more specific about the AV proggs. No suites, can't stand em. AVG, Avast and PC Tools are the AV proggs I have tried so far.
I even dumbed down and/or disabled the settings on the AV with no success.

I purposely don't run firewalls on this machine.

Let me check on the port suggestion and get back to you with a ya or nay.
