file sharing and network discovery RRS feed

  • Question

  • One Care will not let me turn off file sharing and network discovery.  I can navigate through the one care settings and the network and sharing window refer me back to the firewall settings.

  • Hi Titan

    Are you saying that you go into the firewall > the configure firewall and can not turn off the file and printer sharing or the network discovery? If so then I would think about getting in touch with support found here http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1875209&SiteID=2

  • You need to go to the Firewall tab and change the network to Public and these settings will automatically be turned off. If you are on a network that is Private - Home or Work, these are on by default.
