I can't see them but they can see me

I have two windows 7 computers on the network and both join to a homegroup but they can see me but I can't see them but can't figure out why?

Hello soul,

Likely the problem lies with the other computers. Are they windows 7? Make your way to the advanced sharing options (type it into start search) in all computers, if you can. Try changing sharing options to a 'home or work profile'. Type 'network' into the start search and click it. Now see if you are able to see their computers.
