Windows 7: LAN Unidentified Network

LAN Unidentified Network

Hello,
I have two PCs connected through LAN, both PCs are running Windows 7 x64. The network is configured properly and works, but the network icon on both computers show an exclamation mark with the message "Unidentified Network". I tried registry tweaks and also manually setting the network to Private in the Local Security Policy, but nothing worked. I cannot understand why it does that when both computers can communicate with each other perfectly fine. I know it's not a firewall problem. I had this issued for a while but I want to find a solution for it. The LAN was set up to share files between computers only. No Internet connection. Just using a crossover cable.
Was wondering if anyone here has seen anything similar and knows what could be causing Windows to show this message.
Thank you.
