Cant see other Computer in Homegroup

Hey guys, I created a homegroup and my girlfriend join it. So far no problem.
She can see my content without any problems.

She also sees me in the explorer under HomeGroup, BUT I dont.

I cant see her under Homegroup, but can access her under Network > Choosing her computer...

Any clews what that could be?

Are you using any software firewall services? If so, try disabling them temporarily and see if this makes a difference.

Also, there are two services which must be running on both computers "HomeGroupListener", and "HomeGroupProvider" - I would check that both of these are enabled, running, and set to start automatically at start-up on both machines.
