    Hey even though i upgraded to version 5 on xp and win 7. After that i switched off eset firewall and turned on windows firewall. On xp i unchecked file and printer sharing immediately win 7 wont have access to xp but when i turn off file and printer sharing on win 7 still xp will have access to win 7. After all eset wasnt helpful. Maybe i should fix both firewall using registries. I also think that eset is not blocking file sharing port when i select strict protection
