    I installed Win 7 Pro (clean install) on my desktop.
    Although I am connecting to the internet (but not to my home group) my desktop can not see my Vista and XP laptops as part of the network (they were before).
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Did you make sure they are all using the same workgroup name? Did you go into network advanced settings and select use user accounts and passwords to connect?
