windows 7 firewall blocking streaming

I am unable to get streaming working in Win 7 Pro with the firewall turned on. In Network and Sharing Centre it says that streaming is turned on and when I select to stream something it says Turn on Streaming but clicking on the Stream button, nothing happens. Strangely, everything worked fine for a few years and suddenly this problem occurred.
When I check in Home Group (WORKGROUP) settings the troubleshooter says that the Firewall is incorrectly configured. Have done all the suggestions I could find without success. Ant suggestions would be appreciated.
