Good deal orenzai, thanks for pointing out that McAfee uses IP ranges for firewall rules. That will make it easier for others to figure out, I will pass that info on next time it comes up. I'm glad that I could point you in the right direction to help you figure that one out.

No doubt that the adding "Everyone" part throws people off all the time. If I only had a nickle for everytime I posted that information....

Will mark as solved.

This half worked, but in the right direction. Turning off the firewalls I was able to start the HomeGroup on my desktop, and then the Laptop was able to join. However the desktop can only see the laptop but not access the hard drive which is “shared”. My laptop can see everything on my desktop.

Sharing an entire Harddrive has different permissions than just a regular folder. You need to go into the Advance security settings and enable the drive to be shared. Although this isn't a good practice from a security standpoint. You would be better off sharing the entire User folder instead.

To share the entire drive:
Open My Computer -> right click Local Disk D or which ever drive letter your drive is using -> select Properties -> select Security tab -> click Edit button -> click Add button -> enter the name of the User you want to set Security permissions (it is the same user name you've set the sharing permissions for, ex. Everyone will set the read permissions to every user. Put check marks in the boxes for full access and control -> click OK hit apply-> select the desired permissions -> click OK -> wait while permissions are set -> and your Done.

You will also need to use the Advanced sharing tab Sharing>Advanced put a check in the box to share the drive, then click on the permissions tab and "add Everyone" then use the check boxes to allow Everyone full access. Hit the apply button on both windows.
