    Hello,
    Is your anti-virus product some sort of a suite, including network components? How about you tell us more about the anti-virus? Likewise, disable it to see if the problem is related to it specifically.

    What antivirus did you install?
    Show us the network card properties and the installed componants. im guessing the AV installed an ndis filter. i have this problem with kaspersky.

    The antivirus was nod32 security suite. It came with firewall, antisapm, etc, etc. The thing is now i uninstalled the suite and the problem still. Imagine that i have no antivrus no firewall of any kind the webd is exposed to any attack and i still not seeing the computers on the my network places. Like i said you only i can access via explorer with \\
    Thank you

    Maybe you need to re-enable file sharing on these invisible systems?
    Also check if you have simple folder sharing checked in folder options.
    Did your guest account get a password?
