Hi Dan,
Well, what did you do in the days between the workgroups working, and the workgroups not working? Did you install any firewalls, ect..? Can you try restarting your computers into Safe Mode with Networking, and then seeing if you can share files / see your workgroups?

How many computers are on your Network? Can you ping all of the computers by name and IP? What happens when you goto Start, Run, and then type: \\Computer -- replace Computer with the name of one of the other computers on your network, or alternately, you can type in their IP addresses -- to find out their IP's, goto Start, Run, type CMD, press OK, then type ipconfig (you should do this on the other computer...). This would make the command something like: \\192.168.0.103

i don't know the other computer is my sisters because we use it to share music and she isn't the most computer litterate so anything could have happened.
