Windows Domain not showing full list of computers via networks

I have 3 locations that are each a separate sub net.  All are the same domain, and each have a DC on site.  The DC's replicate dns and AD stuff fine.  The 2 remote locations are connected back to the main location via their own 3gb fiber connection.  For the internal connection between locations we are using cisco 3750 running advanced ip services.  We are using static routing and eigrp to handle routing between sites.   The domain controllers are all running 2k8r2 and are patched to latest patches from MS.   I can ping via ip/hostname to all clients and can \\ to any of them just not see anything out of the subnet in network browser.  I have also turned on the computer browser service and set to auto start on the servers.

Main location: PDC and a backup DC.  Running WINS on main and DNS on both 10.1.x.x
Location 1: DC with DNS 10.2.x.x
Location 2: DS with DNS 10.4.x.x

on our 3750's all are running the same version of IOS and feature set.  I have setup ip  forward protocol udp for ports 137,138,139.

I am at a loss of what to do next.  The mystical Google machine has not been able to answer this and my brain is now mush.

What is at the remote locations that you can't see?  Are we talking about workstations or servers or both?  What are the settings on the Windows Firewall?  What operating systems are these missing devices running?

We can't see anything at remote location except local subnet.  Workstations are mix xp and 7 servers are 2k8 with 2k3 file servers.windows firewall is off via gpo.

Can you resolve any of the remote systems by name?  Can you ping them by name?  Assuming all other communications between sites are fine, right?

I can resolve host names i can ping all other traffic is fine, but I can not see computers in other subnets by browsing the network.  I have looked at that blog but server 2k8 does not have the messenger service.  I have made sure computer browser service is started on all servers and workstations.
