To Solve This Problem,

1. Make sure you are able to ping the Workstation by FQDN
2. Simply Enable File and Print Sharing For Microsoft Networks From Properties of Local Area Connection.

Another possibility if that does not work is to make sure the client for microsoft networks did not get deleted from the properties of the network connection

"Call Symantec and get the cleanwipe tool to fully remove Endpoint from your system per MS. Endpoint has mulitple issues that can stop network connectivity, shares, replication, and many more. MS will go straight to look for Endpoint then tell you remove with the cleanwipe tool provided by Symantec. Even with the network access control not installed the services and registry keys are installed like it would be if you installed this solution from Symantec. Endpoint was the other issue when I had trouble. "
