That May be your Problem Could you go to Network and Discovery Settings in Control Panel and change it to Private After that tell me if the Problem Persists if So you may Change it back to Public

Hope This Helps,

Work and Home are both Private. Home was added with Windows 7 but only works if all computers on the network are Windows 7. Work is a type of private network that works with a mix of operating systems.
