PC won't allow sharing to Xbox 360

I set up my network back in April and everything was working fine until about 2 weeks ago when my network quit recognizing my Xbox 360 completely. I am using just a switch and getting internet to both Xbox and Computer. I finally have it to where my Xbox shows up on my network map, but when i go to allow it for streaming media it doesn't show up. before everything went out i hadn't done anything to my computer. Like i said i see that it is on the network, it just doesn't show up on the list of devices to allow streaming to. Any way to update that list for everything on the network? Do i have to do something to my Xbox. Any idea would be helpful i am willing to try anything

Usually things don't just disappear like that. Did you install/remove some software (especially anti virus or security suite)? What software are you using to stream? Are you using your xbox as an extender?

i did not install or remove any software. I do have automatic updates enabled for all my software if that could have done it. I am using windows firewall, and WMP11 to stream. I am using the xbox as a media extender, but i am not using media center. As a test i tried to set up media center and they would not recognize each other still. If there is someway to manually add to that sharing list that would be what i need.

If you have any type of A/V software installed or a third party firewall you should uninstall them completely then test to see if the Xbox shows up after that.
