    I have the only VISTA computer on our Domain. The administrators successfully
    added the computer to the domain, but I can't see any other computer when I
    open the Network icon. I only see my own computer. When I go to one of the
    other workstations (XP), I can see my computer, open it, view my files,
    printers, etc. In short, I can't browse to any other computers/servers but
    they can browse me.

    Is the option network detection enabled in the netwerkcenter?

    Inability to see other computers is generally a personal firewall / NetBT
    mismatch. All computer must be setup identically.

    And for a Vista computer, is its Network Location Type set to Private? If not,
    you have to adjust the firewall manually.

    Network Location Type doesn't seem to come into play on a domain. Mine is set
    to DOMAIN. I think I have all my personal firewalls shut off.

    OK, if this is Vista that is domain sensitive, you're right. I'm still learning
    about the details of every edition, this is worse than Baskin Robbins 31
    Flavors.

    How many personal firewalls do you have? Which vendors?

    I believe the only one I have is Windows Firewall and it is shut off, but I
    don't know how to find if there are more.

    What antitrojan / antivirus do you use?

    Look at "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all" from the problem computer, AND 2
    others, and diagnose the problem. Read this article, and linked articles, and
    follow instructions precisely (download browstat!):
