I have come across the issue where on Vista PCs - the Network Explorer does nor show workgroup computers. Here is the solution that worked for me.

1. Go into Safe Mode With Command Prompt
2. At the command prompt:

net localgroup "Administrators" "local Service" /add [enter]

See "The command completed successfully". Type:

exit [enter] and allow Vista to start normally.
