The most common cause of this problem (at least with the customers I 
diagnosed this with), was they changed something in the network that 
windows barfed on. So workstations configured with a "Local" (Work) 
Profile suddenly applied the "Public" Profile for the local network - 
which is much more restrictive and disables Sharing by default.

Did you check if your problematic workstations are still applying the 
correct firewall profile?

Also - on Vista the firewall profile is global and it locks down 
completely if you have virtual adapters like VMware's.

on XP there are no profiles.

Best Regards
