Hello AVG 2012,

You may simply choose directly connected to the Internet firewall profile. Your files and printers will not be accessible from other computers in LAN.

Right click on AVG tray icon -> Firewall -> Firewall profiles -> choose Directly connected to the Internet.

If you have any further questions or if you need any further assistance please feel free to ask here on forums again.

Thank you.

Hello AVG 2012,

The Directly connected to the Internet Firewall profile by default forbids the file sharing. If this is not the case, I recommend regenerating the Firewall configuration, as it could have been changed or damaged:
1. Open the AVG program.
2. Double-click the Firewall component, and then click Regenerate configuration.
3. Click Yes to confirm the replacement of Firewall settings.

If the shared files are still accessible from other computers, please check whether the respective system rule is set properly as follows:
1. Open the AVG user interface and press F7.
2. Expand the Directly connected to the Internet profile and select System services in the left pane.
3. Find the MS Printer and File Sharing service in the list (scroll down a bit).
4. Make sure Block is defined as the action for this service.
5. Click OK to save any changes.

If the issue is still not rectified, please provide us with AVG configuration and log files as described here for further analysis.
Also, please include a screenshot of the control panel where you turn the file sharing off upon restart:
