I was unfortunate enough to have my storage corrupted and lose my entire OS.
Before this happened, I could never properly access the Windows Network, everything came up as media devices and other devices but never as a computer as it did for other members of my family. So they could use the cloud storage on the network to watch movies and such easily whilst I couldn't.
After the wipe, I could see that I could regain proper access to Windows Network where there were devices showing under the computer tab. I could actually use the network!
Then I installed few programs such as some games and discord but the main program I installed very early on was Avira Free Version. Not long after, I tried to use the network and saw everything appeared as media devices again.
I also installed Avira for my girlfriend's computer and saw the same issue. I tried to disable the firewall and reset all the outbound and inbound rules under Windows Defender Firewall but this has not fixed the issue.
I am unsure how to fix the issue and I am 99% sure it is Avira blocking something with the Windows Network.
