Unaccessible Shared Hardrive and Printer

Specs: Windows Vista
Just yesterday we could access the shared hardrive and printer, but this morning we can't. We can however connect to internet using that PC but cannot access the files and printer. What do I do?

The first thing is look at the firewall settings.

Did any updates run last night?

I don't mean to sound stupid, but how do I do that?

I had checked the firewalls on the pc, and It was off.

I had downloaded norton last week, and I am thinking that probably that was the problem, So I switched all settings to off.

When I came in this morning

I couldn't even connect. It gave me an error 629. I took the modem off the cabinet and just tried logging it directly to a laptop and it worked. The username and password is correct, It also gave a 735 and 733 error.

So now the problem is from outside to the modem works, but from shared PC to modem it doesn't work and from other workstations / LAN to my pc>> doesn't work

I could view my workgroup in other pcs but couldn't see my pc in that workgroup, Do you think the antivirus s/w is blocking this pc's accessibility?

If so, how do I go about UNBLOCKING it?

Norton will wreck anything & it's almost impossible to disable it. They even have removal tool to uninstall it as if it were a virus. People will disagree but I would get rid of it.

I've tried UNISTALLING it but it still appears at the bottom right hand corner of the screen
I've tried turning everything off but I am not convinced its all gone.
Apart from pressing the DELETE button, can you please advise me of another way?
