This probably will not change anything, but when you created your network connection did you go thru the wizard to setup a new network, or did you just create a network connection so you could get your internet?

Try booting windows cleanly.

I need you to reboot windows cleanly. To do that please go to the run command and type in msconfig . Once that starts, select selective startup, and then uncheck the load startup items. Now click on the services tab, and down near the bottom of the window, check the box that says Hide all Microsoft Services now go up and uncheck all the services still listed, make sure you scroll down the list if need to unselect all the non Microsoft services. Now click apply, then click OK and reboot the computer.

Test out the file and printer sharing and see if it works.

Once you have figured out, run msconfig and select normal startup then click apply then OK and reboot. Let me know how it went.

done..
in the Network and sharing Center
turning on File sharing gets : The specified service does not exist as an installed service
turning on Printer sharing gets : The specified service does not exist as an installed service

going thru the printer control panel, Share this printer, when attempting to APPLY "share this printer":
Printer settings could not be saved. Operation could not be completed.(error 0x0000007a)

To keep from asking about individual services, please go to this page and check the running services against the list that is appropriate for your version of Vista. Let me know if there are any problems in getting a service to either run or not run, and if everything is fine, let me know that.
