When you are dealing with Windows machines, you have to not only install and run SNMP but also configure it. Have you gone through the SNMP settings and set it up to allow PRTG to read the values?

Also, you need to make sure that the ports for SNMP are allowed to the devices as well which could include configuring the firewall of the device.

Here is some more information on setting up SNMP: SNMP Setup
