After receiving excellent help to remove Malware from my laptop I still have a problem with Network Discovery and File & Printer Sharing. The individual that helped me with the Malware sent me to this forum as he didn't know how to address this problem.
As long as Windows Firewall is on, I can not turn on Network Discovery or File & Printer Sharing. Under Control Panel, Windows Firewall, Allow a Program or Feature through Windows Firewall, there are no listed Programs or Features listed. I can allow another program, but no features (such as File & Printer Sharing are listed). So far I have tried the following with no success:
1) Restore Defaults
2) Microsoft Fix-it located at http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_firewall_diagnostic/en-us
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
