    ping is a protocol that is controlled by the firewall - - so you need to reenable the FW.

    Your Endpoint Protection may be complicit here, but normally the FW has a means to
    configure which portions of ICMP (aka ping) will be enabled.

    For the default Windows FW, click on the Advanced Tab
    select the Local Area Connection
    and then click the botton ICMP settings
    check [x] Allow Incoming echo request [x] allow incoming timestamp request [x] allow outgoing time exceeded
    click OK
