    hi im having trouble accessign shared files on one of my networked pcs, I am suspecting that it has some policy set to not allow sharing over network. I have shared the folder, then in the firewall settings tab it says that there is a group policy and in fact i cannot switch the firewall on or off as this is controlled by the policy apparently. How can i change this sharing setting in the policies? I am not aware of having ever set any policies on this pc

    You have a GPO running in a home enviroment? I presume it is a home, if at work, contact your IT support staff.
