The cause of the problem was in fact Norton 360 - it was not enough to turn off the firewall, or disable via msconfig. One has to uninstall Norton, and set-up the Homegroup anew. All is then fine.
I have found that McAfee is okay with Homegroups as is AVG, but Norton (once again) lets the side down even though it says it is Windows 7 compatible.
As you can see I did mention Norton as being a problem.

Norton as mentioned before will cause these types of problems all day long, as will just about every A/V or third party firewall in existance.
Yes I'm well aware that you will need to uninstall it completely from your system. It's the nature of the beast.
