I have 3 computers on home network - vista, windows 7 and windows xp. We were all able to see each other until this morning. Now we can not see vista anymore but windows 7 and xp can still see each other. Vista has Macfee security and had an update last night. I tried turning off Mcafee firewall and this did not solve the problem. Any suggestions?

Thanks

are you paying for a full version of mcafee or is this a time limited trail?

often mcafee / norton firewalls will block access and need to be removed, often using a removal tool - see below

Have you logged into the firewall settings and ensured the IP range of your network is setup

Thanks for the reply,
I have paid for a full version of Mcafee, I would like to keep this. I don't know how to work IP range of network. I'm not very technical. II just seen that the Vista computer can see the other 2 computers, but we can not see the vista computer

you should be able to see a trusted network ip range you can set

from any PC post an ipconfig /all here and we can tell you the range to set

This describes how to set individual computers - but there should also be an option to set a range of IP for your full network
http://www.ehow.com/how_5814253_set-computers-mcafee-security-center.html

http://download.mcafee.com/products/manuals/en-us/MPF_UserGuide_2006.pdf
From the "Security Center", choose "Personal Firewall".
Click on "Utilities".
Click on "Trusted and Banned IP", and the trusted and banned IP window will appear.
Make sure that you are on the "Trusted IP Addresses" tab. Click on "Add" to add an IP address, and the "Add IP Address" window will appear.
In the IP address Range , enter ......
from any PC post an ipconfig /all here and we can tell you the range to set

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
