    Little confused. Everything was working great, and then something happened that resulted in your recovering to Vista and then Upgrading to Win7 and now it doesn't work.
    Can we assume that you are (after the recovery) able to do all the things that you were able to do at the beginning of the post, and you can still ping each machine from each machine by ip address and by name?

    If so, when you are failing to connect from the Win7 machine to the XP machine, make sure in the prompt for username and password, you include the XPmachine name in the username part of the prompt, like this XPmachineName\Username and then the password.
    So if your XP Computer is named Graceland and you have a user on the XP computer called ElvisP and his password is hounddog then in the username box you would type Graceland\ElvisP and then hounddog in the password box. Check the box that says remember creds and you should be ok.
    Alternately you could add the username and password that you are using on the Windows 7 machine, to the list of usernames on the XP machine, just make sure that they are identical same name same password and make sure you grant that user the proper permissions to resources on the XP machine, as well as the groups that he is a member of, "Users" and "Authenticated Users" hope this helps
