Windows 8 pro machine. Ethernet. Machine was connecting to home network computers fine. I was troubleshooting an issue disabling a lot of services and drivers. I thought I restored everything, made sure all essential services are on according to Black Viper's website. Other computers on network can see the Win8 computer but the Win8 computer is showing NOTHING on the network. Not even the wireless printer. Internet connectivity is fine.


Something is turned off. Network center is showing the network as 'private' and all sharing settings turned on. Firewall is turned OFF. I must have some service or driver disabled that is required for Windows Networking? But my machine is following this:

Well, went back into Autorun utility from Sys Internals (great utility but can obviously get yourself into trouble with it). Turned on anything that looked possibly network related. Rebooted, and seems fine now.
