To access any share on the computer the Windows Firewall needs to be enabled
to allow file and print sharing from the IP address of the computer you are
trying to access from. If you are managing Windows Firewall via Group Policy
you need to do that in the domain profile. You also can enable logging for
the Windows Firewall on a computer you are having trouble accessing and the
log will show what traffic is being dropped. The command netsh firewall show
config will show basic Windows Firewall configuration. --- Steve

computer_name or ping computer_ip
2) I had checked in firewall setting windows ( under ICMP) the option
does allow the computer to response to ping. The ping computer_name is
3) Also I can't connect to hidden shares.
4) If I shutdown the firewall all is OK.

to hidden shares ( whithout shutting the Windows firewall)?
