    Computer A and B were networked together and sharing files in both directions. After installing Norton 2008 Internet Security on computer A computer B cannot see any files in the Shared Documents folder that is in computer A. I have verified that Sharing is checked in the Shared Documents Sharing tab. When you click in computer B on previously shared networked files that are on computer A I receive an error stating that I don't have permission to view that folder.

    Btw - The Norton install removed many programs. Urgh!

    Any suggestions on how I can network the two computers again would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    There are firewall settings in Norton that you will have to change in order to be able to do that.
