    Try to "Restore Default Policy" in Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. Can find it in left Actions panel.

    In Windows Vista for Won`t turning on network dicovery

    Go to windows Firewall >Change Settings > Advanced and click "Restore Defaults"

    Hi.
    Network discovery is a network setting that affects whether your computer can see (find) other computers and devices on the network and whether other computers on the network can see your computer. By default, Windows Firewall blocks network discovery, but you can enable it.

    >>Open Advanced sharing settings by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, click Network and Sharing Center, and then, in the left pane, click Change advanced sharing settings.
    >>Click the chevron to expand your current network profile.
    >>Click Turn on network discovery, and then click Save changes. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Thank you.

    Reason: One of the reasons ( and the scope of this solution ) could be that the UPnP service is not running.
    Solution: Start the service, here is how:
    Go to the service manager. Click start and type services.mmc in the “Search programs and files”-box. Press enter. ( Ignore the ActiveX error / just click the ok button ) On the bottom of the window that you now see, click on the standard tab.

    Make sure UPnP Device Host is started. If not start it by double clicking it.
    In this “UPnP Device Host Properties” windows, make sure Startup type is set to Automatic, if it’s not, change it. Then clickStart. Now click ok and close the Services windows.
    Try again to Turn on network discovery.
