    Ok, I have tried everything I know of. My XP machine can see/access my windows 7 machine BUT the windows 7 machine cannot see the XP. Both machines can ping each other. the Win. 7 is running mcafee free trial they give you and the XP is running Norton. Turned off both firewalls, no luck. I have seen a lot of the same problems on here. Also, they are in the same workgroup, discovery is on ..etc. all the things that should be done are done. One weird thing though is that I was able to see the XP machine when i refreshed it, but when I pressed refresh again it was gone never to return. no settings were changed in that time from when it came up to when it went away.

    PLEASE HELP
