    Default Firewall settings

    How can i change my firewall or security/anti virus settings? Something is blocking my streaming from my computer to television (DLNA) I am using Eset NOD32.

    Thanks

    Does that include a firewall Eset Nod32?

    Here are directions for disabling security software How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

    Try disabling them and see if in fact that is the issue.

    I think this little padlock is the problem. It is not letting me share anything and i can't remove it. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

    That's a permission issue in windows7. Were you working on this with our member Mitch.

    Please try disabling the security software first to see if that's it.

    Mitch was trying to help me with a DLNA problem. This new problem is stopping me sharing files on my home network (PC to Laptop) I don't know if the two problems are connected but i think it is very likely.

    The padlock is because homegroup sharing has been set up on your computer. It would have been turned on when setting the streaming/sharing options on your computer.

    Firstly, get your antivirus issue resolved, then we will work on the firewall. I would suggest you read up on how the homegroup feature is used and set up here.

    You have 3 threads going now grezaldo, I would suggest only using one thread since your issues are all related, otherwise things get horribly confusing.

    The free version of avast doesn't come with a firewall. If you aren't using a different 3rd party firewall program then there isn't anything to change there.

    So now I would go back to the homegroup set up. Go through the tutorial I linked to above to set up the homegroup sharing properly.

    What operating system is your laptop using?
