Windows 7 Network Discovery issues

Windows 7 refused to connect to local PCs on the network saying network discovery was disabled and I need to turn it on.  I turned it on and restarted but still no joy.

I tried several things including registry permissions but the issue was with windows firewall.  I had to manually create a new rule to allow inbound predefined network discovery connections

Go to windows firewall>>advanced settings

Click on Inbound rules,on right side click on NEW RULE


Now select File and printer sharing and select NEXT

Similarly, do that for network discovery
