    This was not what I was looking for

    Wasn't your question, "How do I set my macbook pro to be able to see it on my networked PC computers?"

    My MacBook pro is set up to share files […]. Now that it is setup I can see my windows 7 pc in the Finder

    Setting up your MBP to 'share files' has nothing to do with 'seeing' your PC in Finder. You can access your PC from your Mac if the PC is set to 'share files'.

    When I go to the Windows 7 PC I do not see the MacBook Pro in the network

    Is the correct protocol (SMB) enabled, as indicated in §6 in the help file referred to above? If that is not detailed enough, try

    Is the Mac's firewall configured to allow file sharing?

    In Win, are you using the correct address and protocol in trying to connect to the MBP?
