The win 7 computer already has those settings checked, and none of the computers have any 3rd party firewalls.
Are both windows XP machines running the same version of windows XP (home edition, Professional)? Does the problem computer have ALL the Windows Updates installed? Lastly how are each of the computers connected to the router IE:Wireless or Ethernet. Also make sure on the Windows 7 computer Network Discovery, File and Printer Sharing, and Public Folder Sharing are all set to "on" and Password Protected Sharing is set to "off". Because Password Protected Sharing turned off, the security permissions have to be changed on the folder(s) to allow Everyone access. Right-click the shared folder > Properties > Security Tab > Edit > Add and type "Everyone" (not the quotes) into the box and select OK. Tick the boxes next to the permissions you want to allow (e.g. Read or Write, etc.) then Apply > OK. Some messages may appear: "An error occurred while applying…" This is not unusual and can be ignored by clicking Continue. 5. Windows firewall is normally set to allow file and printer sharing but if you have a third-party firewall (or Antivirus software) make sure file and printer sharing are enabled so that each machine can talk to the other(s). Do not disable the Windows firewall if it's the only one running.
