Isolate Comodo as the only firewall on the systems then test from there.
AVG has been uninstalled from both computers. Because I have a much older version of Zonealarm I'm hesitant to remove it without knowing it will fix my issue. The one thing I do want to stress is I can access my networked items via \\ipaddress or \\computername and my printer was able to install (not print) via the \\computername thing as well

With Comodo on system(s), the only way to go is to uninstall ZA. Then also, disable the Windows Firewall too.

So I uninstalled AVG and removed zonealarm and nothing has changed. No antivirus programs running, no firewall programs running. Windows firewall is not active... Any other ideas

Do both computers belong to the same workgroup?
