I had the same problem and I am a very advanced user. The solution I found is so simple I feel like an idiot.  :-\
On all affected machines leave the home group. Create a new home group and add all machines to the new group.
Problem solved.  8)

Too bad, does not fix the problem. I'm not using any homegroup (so I left it). Default SAMBA file sharing with local credentials (connect with pc admin account's username and password) does not work when in or out of a homegroup. It's the firewall's fault, when uninstalled all is well.
