    Check that the service is running (Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)).

    Check that the firewall is enabled.

    Check that Mcafee firewall isn't switched on and overridding it.

    Check that you don't have any group policies that are disabling it (run RSOP.MSC to see culmination of all policies on that machine).

    Is it affecting one machine or multiple?
