Windows 7: Sharing printers with Macs (again)

Sharing printers with Macs (again)

I'm trying to get the MacBook Pro to see the shared printers on my Windows 7 PC. I have it set to work network, set up a workgroup, turned the windows firewall off, turned password protected sharing off, set the printers to share, and nothing.

When I go into the printers and fax window on the Mac, it can see the workgroup I set up, but it can't see my PC with the shared printers on it. Incidentally, another workgroup shows up on the Mac with the name "workgroup", but I don't know where that is coming from. Anyone have any advice?

I can ping to and from both devices.
