Basically i can't disable Network Discovery and File Sharing on Windows Vista since it says my firewall can be used to disable this, but i can't find the option anywhere to do it? Any ideas?

Hello Caljif...

Open Control Panel and double click on the "Windows Firewall" icon. Click the "Change Settings" link in the right frame...[Continue]. In the window that opens, click on the "Exceptions" tab. In the list, locate "Network Discovery" and remove the tick from the box next to it. Apply the change and reboot.
