Do you have installed any third party firewall?  Usually comes with Security Solutions.

Also make sure Client for Microsoft Networks is installed and working in the Network Card of the Windows 7 machine.

Then, on the Windows 7 machine, reset TCP/IP.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Restart the computer

Ping (ICMP) is a separate service and has to be enabled in the Firewall setup.  Turning off the firewall does not enable ping.  See the ANSWER on this page: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-networking/how-to-enable-ping-response-in-windows-7/5aff5f8d-f138-4c9a-8646-5b3a99f1cae6

Also, if you are pinging by name, try pinging by IP address...
