And what is NetBIOS ?, some says it allows you to change the BIOS settings remotely, others say it doesn't do anything ???

    NetBIOS or also know a NetBEUI. Has nothing to do with the system BIOS. It is a basic networking framework Windows OS uses for LAN file sharing and SMB runs on top of.

    I am thinking at this point your firewall is stopping the communications between the two computers. try and stop the firewall for a bit and see if you can get them to see each other.

    Weird, now I got the same limited access mode as before with firewalls down


    And as the desktop is added to "Trusted Zones" and the "whitelist" - it should be able to communicate even if the firewall is up

      Then you have a permissions issue on the share.

      Make sure the simple file sharing is turned off, then check the sharing permissions on the share.

      Ensure Everyone has full control. By default a new share does not have full control for everyone.

      If simple file sharing is enabled, you will not have the option of setting user permissions.

      SMB hasn't run on netBIOS since win 9x/NT4.

        Windows 2000/XP/2003 had the option of running in Direct Hosting, no NetBIOS, but had to be configured, by default still used NetBIOS. Starting in Vista (SMB V2) was default to Direct Host and run over TCP so does 7 (SMB 2.1)

        Just to get more info about the problem with the shares, I installed a virtual XP machine on win7

        And it detected the desktop shares as soon as I changed network to "WORKGROUP"
        EDIT: It has full control over the shares

        But it couldn't find the shares on win7

            It shouldn't do anything good, as I have read that only win7 computers corporate in "Home" networks

            Edit: It didn't change anything

              Yes it would, Home, Work, Public are default settings how windows handles network traffic.

              did you reboot after changing to home? If not, try that.

              Under the Network Security and Sharing center, does your homegroup say joined?

              Also while in the network security and sharing screen click towards the bottom where it says Advanced options, review these settings and adjust as needed.
