Windows 7: Windows 7 pro 64bit not showing any computers in network map

Windows 7 pro 64bit not showing any computers in network map

When clicking on "network", only the computer I am working on shows up.
This is on an active directory domain.
I have made sure network discovery is turned on.
Link layer topology is started and is checked for all network adaptors.
I have gone into gpedit and turned on Mapper i/o and responder.
I have tried turning off the firewall.

I can still map drives just find and such but I need to link a program to a license manager and it will only work through the network map.
Our XP machines are fine, just our windows 7 32 and 64, that do not work.
