I have my PC plugged directly in the 2960 Cisco switch with vlan10 and I cannot ping the PC from the switch. I cannot ping from the core either. I can access the network and the Internet without any problem. Is there something in my Win 7 that blocks the ping reply? Thx

    Try turning off the firewall on the windows  machine but do not disable the firewall service.  If it doesn't respond after turning off the firewall then try to disable the firewall service.
