What is the point of this forum, when developers aren't answering. Or if someone else know the answer, why no one answer.

Are you using HomeGroup?  (You didn't say).

Are your settings set like below?

Everything is set correctly, visibility is on, it is set to private network, printer sharing is on, and still my notebook is not visible on my desktop, until i shut down the avast, when i kill avast my notebook appear on my network. I have 3 shields, in avast to kill one by one, but when i go to systray right klick and disable avast for 10 min, he says that he have 5 shields disabled. So i don't know which shield is blocking. And it is free edition of avast.

Hi, I'm not aware of any feature in Avast Free that would/could block this.

- Other security related software installed..?
- Which AV(s) did you use before Avast..?
Win 8.1 [x64] - Avast PremSec 20.2.2401.Beta#4 [UI.502] - CC 5.65 - EEK - Firefox ESR 68.6 [NS/AOS/uBO/PB] - TB 68.6 - ASB/ASL.BC

Since you are using the free version, there is another firewall in the mix.
Make sure that Avast is allowed full access through that firewall.

Fresh windows 10 profesional, no other av before avast, none of the firewall exept  windows default.
Firewall isn't a problem, cause disabling avast (completely shutdown) my pc is shown on network. Turn on the avast, he is gone.

Avast tool say it is all ok. Never mind deleting avast and switching to some other Antivirus.
