    How can I turn the ESET firewall off? Since I can't share folders with in it I need it off and will use windows firewall. Sucks since I have a paid subscription and can't utilize the features I have paid for.

    With your license, you can use either ESET Smart Security or just NOD32 antivirus. NOD32 antivirus will turn on the Windows firewall.

    I have the Security Suite which is more expensive than just the Anti-Virus but doesn't allow me to use Homegroups or share folders as I was able to do with other Security Suite Programs......

    I've been using HomeGroup with ESS fine. Do you have the remote computer's IPv6 address in the Trusted zone and all Windows 7 services in the IDS setup enabled?

    Sharing is allowed for computers in the Trusted zone. Make sure the IP address of the computer attempting to access your shares is in the Trusted zone.
