    I run Windows xp professional on my laptop, and i have tried to shared
    some files across my network, When you try to access my files across
    the network a windows comes up saying something about permissions, i
    have disabled the windows firewall (at least i think i have) and i have
    got norton firewall set to low. -I have tried turning norton off aswell
    but the shared folder still cannot be accessed.
    Please help.

    Here is - www.wown.com , see the file sharing bit.
    Start / Help and Support / type

    folder share

    in the Search box, click on the green arrow (for - go / start search)

    30 results found for folder share
    No, you set the FW to allow file sharing, on the local LAN and if
    possible specific machines.
    Having shared a folder, you then clicked on the permissions button and
    allowed specific users/groups to access the share. Remembering to create
    the username/passwords.
