I'm running windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64.
When I access the network tab from start I get a yellow banner saying Network discovery and File sharing are turned off. If I click to change it just reverts to the same message. When I turn Windows firewall off it works fine.
I have tried to turn the stuff on via windows firewall advanced settings, inbound rules, new rule and discovered Predefined was greyed out. After some research I deduced that the issue was the default key and all sub keys was missing from the registry node
I am guessing possibly something to do with removing Symantec end point protection.
I successfully exported the key from another working machine with the same setup and imported to the non-working machine which populated the predefined rules correctly however now get an access denied error while attempting to install the rules.
Does anybody have any idea how or what I have to do to complete the fix?
