settlej Posted January 12, 2010 Share Posted January 12, 2010 I have a Windows 7 64bit system and I discovered that I am unable to turn off filesharing. The advanced firewall section shows all filesharing options disabled(grayed out) and echo request as well. But I am still able to share with this computer from another computer. Thankfully the password protect still works. I'm on a domain network but I also removed it from the network to see if that was the problem. All profiles (private, public, domain) are all disabled for filesharing. I reset firewall defaults and restarted computer and service. But still no luck. There was only one thing I could do, which was "block all incoming connections" but which seemed to work but I have been getting mixed results. Has anyone ever come across the same issue? This isn't the first time this happened I also came across this during Windows 7 RC testing (I thought it was a bad install). I think there is some serious flaw in Windows 7's firewall.
