Have you tried to disable FW or just configure it for FILE sharing?

Yes. Firewall if Off and Print & file sharing is enabled.

Hm, it's strange that you can't ping that PC from any other PC on the network.
Do you have any other thirdparty software installed that could block communication, like third party firewall, antivirus, antispyware apps?

Are you able to ping anything else from the computer that gives you the error? Also, are you attempting to ping the IP address or hostname?

I fixed it. There was cisco VPN client installed on PC and VPN firewall was on. I disabled VPN firewall and its working fine now.

Thanks for your relavant answers.

Yes, that's why I asked if you have any third party Firewall, antivirus or antispyware apps, because that is the cause of this problem in most cases.
