    can anyone help me out:

    i have 2 computers on the same router. i turned off firewalls on both computers. windows simple file sharing is off also. on the host computer i right click a folder and go to sharing and security. i choose the share this folder option. in the permissions on the sharing tab, Everyone is listed. on the other computer, i can see the host computer on the network but when i double click, it says not accessible. you might not have the permission to use blah blah blah...

    does anyone know what i'm doing wrong?

    Well, if you want to share files, don't you have to have file sharing turned on?
