Windows 7: Xbox 360 can no longer find my PC

Xbox 360 can no longer find my PC

So within the past day or two, my 360 has stopped recognizing my PC. I was able to stream video to my 360 with no problems in the past but it seems as if the last updates I got for Seven have caused my 360 to stop recognizing my PC on the network. Also, when I check in WMP to make sure that sharing is enabled, it says "Media streaming is not turned on". I click the button to turn on media streaming like I had done in the past and I make sure that it says to allow the 360 and other devices and then i click ok. When I return to the sharing page it says "Media streaming is not turned on". Somehow the last Seven update seems to have permanently disabled the streaming option and I'm pretty sure that this is the reason why my 360 can't find my PC on the network. How can I fix this? I'm on a Home network.

Doing a system restore fixed the problem for now. Still not sure what caused it or how long it will continue to work.
