I am working on a domain.  I have dell windows 7 pc that needs to share a folder off of its hard drive, to other dell PCs on the domain.  I have shared the folder out for read/write to 'everyone'.  The xp machines can reach it, but most of the windows 7 machines cannot get to it.  Are there any good troubleshooting steps for this, or is there any setting I should be checking on the windows 7 machines.  I do have the advanced sharing options turned on already, but did not turn off the firewall.  Thank you very much for your help.

Right click the folder to be shared, properties, security, add, type - everyone, click on check names, Everyone will get underlined, ok. This should fix the issue.
