For the printer I think it's spoolsv.exe in your windows\system32 directory,
well it is on mine anyway.

I also have to allow svhost.exe in the same directory for some network
applications to access the net.

I take that back. With the firewalls off I then went to printer on the
new PC's Control Panel and, again, told it to share. Now I can access
the printer and also the other PC.

Next question. To make this safe as well, which programme do I need to
enter as an Exception, in the Firewalls?

Thanks for the quick progress.
