I was trying to access this pc on our subnet and could ping it and access it 100%.  Then I tried to run a program off the PC I was trying to access, at this point windows popped open a window asking me if I wanted to block the incoming connection (firewall).  I told it to unblock and once I did that I can no longer ping that PC from the computer I was using.  

I can ping it just fine from everywhere else in the network.  Just not that one computer now.

I turned off the windows firewall but no luck!  I never rebooted the PC and some setting has changed....

What is the reason for this?
