Home computer, plugged into a little Cisco router (Linksys?) with wireless network to two other computers. This computer shares a folder and a printer. Once McAFee installed, no printer and no shares were working. I stopped sharing the local folder (folder on the C: drive) and then started sharing it again, thinking that would reset McAFeee to allow this.  No good.  I cannot find any way to configure this McAfee, I would assume a firewall exception is needed. Please help.
