Windows 7: Can't save changes to homegroup settings

Can't save changes to homegroup settings

Hello, I can't save changes to homegroup settings. When I try to share libraries and printers, printers is already checked, I check other options, like pictures, music, etc. I then click save changes and exit. The problem is when I go back in, it hasn't saved my settings - all the boxes except Printers are unchecked again.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks! Option 2 number 6 was the workaround I could use. I still don't understand why I can't save the settings in the "Change homegroup settings" like I said, the checkmarks just disappear after I exit even though I click "Save changes". But your solution is a good workaround. Thanks again!
