Have you tried removing your anti-virus application? Disabling doesn't always do the trick, so if you would - please uninstall AVG, restart, and see if things improve.

Something else to check - did you supply drivers for the NIC, or did Windows 7 install them automatically? If Windows installed them, check the manufacturer for updated 7 drivers. Next, check the NIC settings in the device manager and see if anything looks out of place.

Yay! I am now able to see my networked computers! I uninstalled my version of AVG and everything works great. Now all I have to do is get a new security program :-> Thanks to everyone that helped.

Yesterday I uninstalled the drives and restarted to let Windows 7 find the correct drivers for them.

After I saw the screen shots she posted, I figured uninstalling AVG was worth a shot. Glad it helped!

I can't say in this case if it was AVG or an actual user setting made in it after install- but AVG is wreaking havoc on people's pcs giving all sorts of bsod and other stuff as well, like poor system performance.
