Because you have a home network your LAN's settings should allow file and
printer sharing.That's why turn on Windows Firewall and goto Exception list
and put a tick on file and printer sharing.This will allow you share files
and hardware between the networked PCs.
Try Panda Titanium 2006 Antivirus + Antispyware
Panda Titanium 2006 includes TruPrevent technologies
