    Computer visible to one user but not another

    I have 3 computers on my home network, two are Windows 10 desktops, one is Windows 7 laptop. I'll call them 10-1, 10-2, and 7.

    10-1 can see 10-2 and 7.

    7 can see 10-1 and 10-2.

    10-2 can see 7 but CANNOT see 10-1. What can cause this problem?

    All are Ethernet connected to the same router.

    New observation: As an experiment I turned off discovery and restarted 10-1. It is still visible to the Windows 7 laptop and sharing is the same. It seems like the settings in the network and sharing center have no relationship with what is really going on.

    Its fixed

    I tried today and all 3 computers see all other computers. KB3139907 installed on 3/2 and KB3139907 on 3/3. Maybe one of these fixed it?
