I don't believe that Windows 7, would be causing the issue, but perhaps some corruption in the local netbios cache on one or more of the other machines (by the way you didn't say what operating systems are on the other machines, this could be important and if they are all Win 7, it'll make what I'm saying irrelevant) but if they are a combination of say XP and Win2k, then perhaps you should take a look at the event viewer on those machines and see if you are seeing anything regarding browser elections, it could be that the "Master Browser" is changing as machine are brought up and or down on the network. First try going to all the machines and from a command prompt type nbtstat -RR this should purge and reload the local netbios cache on each machine. Let us know if this helps.
