Have you enabled Network File Sharing? and of course have you already
disabled your 3rd-party firewall properly if you installed?
If you only start "computer browser" service, it is not enabled. you
also need to enable Network File Sharing to enable "computer browser".
If you already enabled, I can not understand why and recommend to
capture packets and analize.

It's not a surprising matter. Sorry, to explain why is a bit
difficult. Generally Windows client can search DC whether it can
announce itself by responding to nmblookup or not.
