I have a windows 7 Home Premium laptop and a windows xp Media Center Edition laptop.
My problem is the sharing files/folders. I have been trying all morning to set ONLY the PUBLIC FOLDER to share from the windows 7 comptuter, but when I go to network places on the other computer, ALL THE USERS I have on windows 7 are showing AND all documents within.

Iíve tried setting the folders to NOBODY where I get the little padlock icon but then when I click the folder properties is says..SHARED..
I donít want to turn off file/printer sharing because then I canít access my PUBLIC FOLDER.

Please help
