Hi there. I purchased a new computer on Black Friday which contained Windows 7 Home. I want to be able to share things like music and video from my XP Pro (64 bit) computer to my Win7 computer and vise versa. I have looked at some guides and I follow the instructions and I still cant seem to " see " my XP computer in the Network screen of Win 7. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I followed them step by step. I can see my XP computer from the Win 7 but I can't see any files from my Win 7 when I am using XP. I am running Norton Internet Security on Win 7 in case that matters. A friend told me it may have something to do with Nortons firewall but again, I don't know where to start.
