My Windows 7 Network Places do not show local network computers since about one month ago.

I tried turning on Network Discovery in Network and Sharing Center by changing advanced sharing settings.

My PC is in WorkGroup connected wirelessly through a router. Other computers are also running Windows 7.

Other computers can see my PC and they access my shared folder, only my computer can't see them – even through the command line with \\ip or pcname I can't access it. Through cmd I can ping them though.

I think it may be caused by a virus. Because when I share a folder, a "Your folder can't be shared" message occurs, but actually it was shared.

So, if you think it's a virus, did you scan for viruses? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 23 '12 at 14:13
