Network ping issue

Problem with seeing XP machine on network.

XP can ping other machines, other machines can't ping it.

Had simple file sharing turned off, turned it back on.
No firewall issues, reinstalled network driver.
Have a shared folder on XP machine.

Not sure what else to do...

Did you setup a homegroup on your windows 7 machines? You can use the setup code and then you have to put in the name of the homegroup in the workgroup settings of xp.

Thanks, I had thought all the AV was uninstalled but Mcafee was just turned off, but still running services. Once I uninstalled Mcafee it all worked great!
