Computer 1 has W7 64 bit Primary computer
Computer 2 has W7 64 Bit Lap top
Computer 3 has Vista 32

On Computer one I can see Computers 2 and 3 no problem
On Computer Two I can see computer 3
On Computer Three I can see computers 1 and 2

My problem is why can't I see computer 1 (my primary computer) on Computer 2 (my laptop)

Problem solved, I played around some more in advanced sharing settings Not sure what I changed, i just turned thing on and off.
It also could have been that even though the lap top had been on awhile it finally discovered computer one (1)

For those having similar problems (I am by no means a networking expert, I had my share of problems as well) The workgroup name for all PC's must be the same. A good article for these type problems can be found at How To Geeks.

You can also set up a Homegroup between the Win 7 PC's.

A Google search on Advanced Sharing shows many sites with advice on setting up sharing in your network.

Sarge, thanks for posting this problem and mentioning the solution. I suspect you hit upon this solution during your experimenting with sharing.
