I am trying to share files and printers on a home network with 3 pc's. I have run the windows network wizard and shared the files and printer but when i try to access from other pc's it says have not got permission.

I think this is because of the firewall but how do i configure it? please help !!!!!

Add the other PCs IPs to the trusted zone in the firewall. Get the other PCs IPs from a command line IPCONFIG /ALL. Might have to set static IPs if DHCP allocates a range of IPs.

They have different anti - virus on the pc's, mcafee on one and norton on the other two will this make a difference.

Not if you configure them both correctly. If you just disable both you can check if the cause is the firewalls (As long as you have a hardware firewall - if not disconnect from the internet first and re-enable before connecting again)
