Cannot access windows 7 computer using remote desktop

I have this very strange problem with this computer running Windows 7 Enterprise not in a domain (fully up to date as my other machines running the same OS)
When I disable the firewall (Windows default FW) I am able to access the computer. Enabling it prevent access through remote desktop (ping does work by the way) So I imported a firewall rule of one of my computer running the same system, but still I can't access the machine remotely... Does importing a fw rule replace the older one or merge with it ?

Thanks for your advice

The rule has to be for the correct type of network.  You may be set to Public instead of Home or Work.  Public really locks it down.  Make sure the firewall rule has a check in the box next to the type of network it thinks you are on.

If you are able to access it when the firewall is turned off but not when it is turned on then it should be just a matter of going to control panel -  windows firewall and then select allow a program or feature through then select remote desktop as per screen dump attached
