    for windows 7 :

    1- go to netword and sharing center
    2- Change Advanced sharing settings
    3- in Home Network turn on network discovery
    4- Turn on file sharing
    5- use 128-bit encryption
    6- Turn off password protected sharing
    7- save changes
    8- go to desktop then right click on computer and choose properties , then you could be able to see your computer details , go down until you see Computer name ,domain , and workgroup settings
    9- check your workgroup name , for me its WORKGROUP

    for windows XP :

    1- go to your network area
    2- view network connections
    3- setup a new home or small office network
    4- keep clicking next until you see Computer name , enter your computer name and then next , you could be able to see network name and make sure its WORKGROUP not MSHOME then keep clicking next until setup is finished

    then finally restart your computer , then you should be able to see the other computer in network

    hope that helps , with my best wishes
