If you cannot ping a Windows 7 box, don't just disable the Windows Firewall.  See the following page describing how to enable the included ICMP Echo rule in the Windows Firewall:

Note that I shut down the Windows Firewall service (net stop mpssvc) and this did not "re-enable" ping.  I had to add the firewall rule.  There may be another solution, but this solved my problem.

...Or you can enable your firewall, baut create a rule for the ICMP (ping).
This is one way (command line): http://www.marcodenicolais.it/articoli-tecnici-su-informatica-programmazione-sistemi-distribuiti-networking-security-clusterizzazione-virtualizzazione/35-windows-vista-e-windows-7-non-risponde-al-ping-come-abilitare-la-risposta-ping-da-firewall.html
or this one is through GUI: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=it&lc=it&dlc=it&docname=c02138391
