When i try to share a folder/drive the following message shows up:
As a security mesure, Windows has disabled remote access to this computer. However, you can enable remote access and safely share files by running the Network Setup Wizard.
I run it, but when the wizard starts configuring the network an error window appears saying "Cannot Complete the Network Setup Wizard. An error occurred during configuration of the network on this computer . You can configure the network manually, or you can run the wizard again with different settings".
Is there a way to configure the network manually?.

Thanks in advance.

PS: I have boradband internet access through my ethernet adapter, so hardware is fine.

Turns out Windows was using the the lan driver from its database. I installed the one that came with the motherboard's CD. Run the Network Setup Wizard and no error window appeared. It seems that now i can share files but i have another problem, my computer is not shown in the workgroup. Never mind, i will post this issue in another topic.
