Do you have the windows firewall running?

Right click on "My Network Places" and go to properties
Right click on your network connection (usually local area network connection) and go to properties
Click on the "advanced" tab
Click "Settings" under "windows firewall"
If it is set to On change the bubble to Off
Hit Ok/close all of the open windows
Give your games, etc another try

As for hosting online games you may need to configure some settings in your home router. Only one computer at a time in your house will be able to host a game that is accessible by people outside your network.
