it shows a hand underneath the printer on the other computer. but this computer it finds The Network, it finds the group, and it finds the computer, there is a + sign next to the computer name, but whn i click it, it wont expand. when i type in the printer name it was set to manually, it still cant find it.

Have you checked the firewall setting, Zone Alarm must be set for the trusted zone

With the browsers closed, have you tried disabling the firewall on both PC's to see if you can get the printers

Make sure you enable the firewall before going online
