MS windows 7 pc's cannot see folder share

Hi, I have just removed kaspersky IS and put AVG IS on to a couple of win 7 pc's.
One acts as the peer to peer server. with a folder share. and a program for the mail called VPOP3 by pscs.
before i explain the issue, I have removed AVG and disabled windows firewall.

Both pc's that have the issue have the same components.
The problem is, The 2nd pc can ping the so called server, name and IP.
but when doing \\server or \\ipaddress. it can't find it.

On the server, the mail software has a status program that needs to look back on itself at the service. but this is failing to.

I have disabled IPV6.
if i ping server on the server and 2nd pc. I get
reply from ::1: time<1ms
i don't get the IP

I have also disabled the windows built in IPV6 teredo tunneling pseudo-interface

just a wierd question why are you disabling ipv6? if anything it helps you find network places.
on the first pc have you shared any folders?
peer to peer network... you should see if setting the usernames and passwords on both computers to the same will help.
also check netwrok and sharing ..  click on : choose homegroup and sharing options.
and try setting the options inthere it may help.

hi, usernames and passwords are the all the same on every pc.
i have 2 other win 7 pc's that work fine with the server.

I was just wondering if it maybe some hardware issue.

network/sharing looks fine

i disabled IPV6, cos i thought that maybe causing the issue

the second pc now sees the folders and the email server.

last problem is the server can not see itself properly. As in, windows mail and the email srv status software cannot look back on itself.

the windows firewall is disabled.
I'm wondering if, when i removed kaspersky it some how messed up the firewall. ?

problem solved, when i moved kaspersky it had originally reset the IP address to the external IP address provider by the router. Don't know how it got it. the server only has one network card. And all pc's plug into a switch first. There;'s no proxy either.

On the mail software. It needed the IP restriction to be reset to the local lan.
