Boot into safe mode, right click on your drives, and select the "security" tab. Make sure the correct users have the right permissions set here.

i did everything in that link and did the save mode thing. but still on my pc i can internet and view all other computers on the network  but the other computers cant see my computer but they see eachothers.  ( others computers see my pc  but cant acces my files)

i reinstalled windows all over again on one of the computers on the network, but it is still the same, they cant view my files.

my pc is the only pc with FAT32 all the others NTFS.... would that be the problem?

thanks in advance

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

no
enable zone alarm, and configure it to allow your local network to be trusted

Computer Browser Service is enabaled in all pc's

i already enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP  i was told to do that in the link you gave.
i just rebooted my router and all pc's  and enabled and disabaled and enabled  
Computer Browser Service and NetBIOS over TCP/IP  again and again to be sure
but still the same problem.

it seems like the other pc's dont have permmision to acces my files....

where ip address is the ip adress of the other machine, and sharename is the name of the share you have given

on your machine, boot to safe mode, log on as the admin
go to windows explorer, right click on c:
choose security, and check the permissions, make sure everyone and guest is listed with permissions to the share
