Thanks! I hope it works now. But how can I make sure that my laptop can't share ANYTHING with my pc? Because I think this laptop is not safe

Looks like I have private all the time. So with private I don't need to worry about it right?

Hi, Axel. For maximum network security it's best to set it to Public. See SenOfJive's comment, here.

https://community.norton.com/en/comment/7587231#comment-7587231

When you change the trust level of your network, Norton assigns the same trust level to all the devices that are connected to that network. You can change the default network settings for individual devices by changing the trust level of each device to trust or restrict.

If you use a wireless network that is not secure, the default trust level of all the devices that are on the network is Public.

Change the trust level of your network

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Firewall.

  3. On the General Settings tab, in the Network Trust row, click Configure.

  4. In the Network Trust window, under Trust Level, choose one of the following:

    • Full Trust to allow all network traffic that your computer receives from Trusted networks. Known attacks and infections are still monitored. This setting should be selected only when you are sure that the network is completely safe.

    • Private to protect your computer from known attacks and unexpected traffic and to share files, folders, media, and printers with other devices on your network. To set the trust level to Private, your computer must meet the following requirements: it does not have the public IP address; it is connected to LAN through a secure connection; its network category in Windows Vista is set to private.

    • Public to protect your computer from known attacks and unexpected traffic and block sharing of files, folders, media, and printers with other devices on your network. This setting also blocks remote desktop connections by default.

      You can configure the Public Network Exceptions setting to share files, folders, media, and printers and set up remote desktop connection with devices over the network.

    • Restricted to block devices on your network from communicating with your computer. Devices on restricted networks can still browse websites, send and receive email, or transmit other communications.

  5. Click Apply, and then click OK.

Re: wmpnetwk on laptop and pc

I find that "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" aka wmpnetworksvc aka "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmpnetwk.exe" tends to get corrupted then run crazy trying to index media all over the computer (or where it was told to) over and over again. I usually disable it. It's yet another windows feature that has a "on" switch, but no "off" switch.
