Windows 7: Media Player Homegroup Permissions Problem

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Media Player Homegroup Permissions Problem


I had homegroup problems so I cleaned all Windows 7 peer files in the windows dir.

Now I've created homegroup again, but media player now doesn't have an approved permission to engage homegroup on the folders.

When I add HomeGroupUser$ security permissions to wmplayer it works, but only during that session. When I close wmplayer or reboot I have to do it again. I don't know how to fix permanently.

Default Wmplayer Security now reports:
