Cant turn on windows 7 network discovery or file sharing

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Whenever I turn the option on it resets itself to the off position. I know my computer was infected with a virus at one point but it was cleaned and there are no other infections. I was doing some research and it turns out I believe my default firewall settings are corrupt or missing? When I tried to restore the default policy in windows firewall it gave me an error code 5. What else should I be looking for? Is there anything I can do to fix this issue? I'm at the point where I'm content and about to do a clean install of windows. But before I do that I'd thought I'd ask for the input of overclock.net

What type of file sharing? Like SMB?

Can you \\192.168.0.XX\C$ into the machine?
