Windows 7: Homegroup Issue

Homegroup Issue

I have two computers running Windows 7 that are joined in the same Homegroup. However, only one of the computers sees the other. It can move files back and forth as designed. The "other" computer says it is joined to the Homegroup, but that no other computers in the group are on line. I've run the troubleshooter drills with no effect.

Any suggestions?

Maybe this Homegroup trouble shooter will help figure out what the problem is.

Thanks for the tip. The light dawned on me as I was working through the guide. I had recently done a reinstall... and then another reinstall of windows on one of my machines. I had forgotten to turn on file sharing. Until this was turned on, the other computers won't see it, even though it can see the others.
