Default Can't see all computers in network places

Hi all and thanks for reading.

I have a weird problem, I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
We have one SBS2008 box in our network. Some computers are inside the domain and some others are in a workgroup. We've been workling well for several months. Today, people that are joined to the domain, started asking me why they don't see all the computers in their network places. You can access all the resources by its IP address (i.e. \\192.168.1.87), you can also access all the resources by its name (i.e. \\MYPC) BUT I can see only some of them in the Network. In my case, I'm using Win7 and I can only see the 2 WVista computers and one NAS... Do you have any idea of what is happening? can I rebuild and propagate again the windows names to all computers?
. We use the SBS DHCP.

Thank you very much,

Jud

Thanks Ossian,

I could only browse Windows Vista computers, most of them are XP, and three NAS boxes.

I say I could because I found how to fix it:

I enabled the "computer broswser service" in the SBS 2008 box, and everything works again!

Have a great day !

Jud
