Windows 7: WMP does not show up as a streaming option/device

WMP does not show up as a streaming option/device

I've been trying to stream content to my tv, (Panasonic Viera) but it doesn't show up on the tv as a 'DLNA Server'. However, my family's other computer does show up and can stream content just fine. For my computer- Under Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Media streaming options, the "Media programs on this PC" option gave the following:

On my family's other computer it has Windows Media Player as the Device and its info in the same box

Wondering if anyone knows why this is, or how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Figured out that the problem had to do with my firewall (ESET). After checking the box for "Allow UPNP for system services in Trusted zone" under Allowed services, everything works fine now.
