Are you using static IPs or DHCP on these computers? Have you tried leaving that workgroup and creating a new workgroup (perhaps something like "workgroup2" or more unique)? And, are you using a third party firewall/security suite?

Both computers have static IPs. What this boiled down to I think was a browser war between the two computers over who would be the Master Browser. I read somewhere yesterday that the last one turned on would become the Master Browser. Both computers see each other OK so I'm not going to worry about it any more. Thank You for your response.
