Is the network set to "home" on both computers?

A computer will only show in the network tab if that machine has something available to share.

Does the machine have a shared folder?

For testing purposes try to create a test share and see if the machine appears - Sharing and Permissions

Also for testing purposes ensure that password protected sharing is turned off as this can cause implications - Password Protected Sharing - Turn On or Off in Windows 7

You are trying to share the entire C: drive on your machine as well as open it up to everyone and Windows isn't liking it.

Remove the permissions that you have applied and create a folder on your desktop, once done share that particular folder

Click Start> (Your Username)

This should bring up a list of user folders similar to mine. Individually share the folders that you wish to have accessed. If you feel that is sharing too much then open a folder and share the folder within that
