Please see http://www.shorewall.net/starting_and_stopping_shorewall.htm -- the 
"shorewall stop" command places Shorewall in a "safe" state where the only 
connections allows are to/from those hosts listed in 
/etc/shorewall/routestopped. If you want to remove all effects of Shorewall, 
the command you want is "shorewall clear".

Which QuickStart Guide did you use to set up your Shorewall configuration? 
Have you verified that you followed each "red arrow" step correctly? Where is 
the Windows box? Local Zone?
