    Can not receive any files from the other Windows 8.1 compu

    I am working in Windows 8.1 Pro.
    My Anti-Malware is set too high.
    I can not receive any files from the other Windows 8.1 computers on my network.
    Is there a way to set it down a notch so my whole network is not unusable.

    I have my Kaspersky Antivirus and Windows Firewall and Defender off.

    First off why do you have it set so high that the computer is not able to do anything. Second off, there is a help file in Kaspersky that walks you through the settings.

    I never use it, because I have a Gateway that has a very strong Firewall. Along with other measures on the computer to keep drivebys at bay.

    It is always best to search the software vendor's website first. If you get stuck, post the link and questions.
