Need Settings for total protection 2012

I bought McAfee Total Protection 2012 and installed it on my Windows Vista 32 bit. I got myself a new laptop with Windows 7, and wanted to network (wireless) the two computers together. Both can see each other, both can get on the Internet. From the Vista, I can view the shared files and folders on the windows 7. From the window 7 I cannot view any files or folders on the vista. Every time I try to change a sharing setting in the "Network and Sharing Center" I get the message "The specified service does not exist as an installed service". My Windows security center is OFF and I cannot turn it on. My windows Defender is OFF and I cannot it on either. Can I please get some advice on this problem? Thank You.

Were you getting other messages such as

If so Mcafee techs feel you might be infected.

Did network work before Mcafee installed?

Whether the Network and sharing center Works without the McAfee installed on the PC ?
