Cannot turn on media streaming
I have a home network setup and am running Windows 7 Pro on my main computer. I am trying to stream my media from this computer to other devices on the network and have successfully many times on this network, mainly to a Sony tv in the living room. I don't know when or what happened, but one day I tried to watch a video on my TV, and the Windows Media Server was unavailable.
-Network is setup as a "Home" Network
-I have Windows firewall turned off
-Am running Norton 360 firewall instead of Windows firewall
-Have reset Norton firewall to all the default settings (which I believe allows media sharing by default)
-Have my libraries shared
-But, here's the problem I believe- when I go to Windows Media Player to ensure Media streaming is enabled, a button says "Turn media streaming on", but when I press it, it grays out for a few seconds, like it is turing it on, but then dosen't change to "Turn media streaming off", nor do I get the button at the bottom to "Save" settings.
I recently converted to a SSD drive for OS and seperate data drive in RAID0, so changed a regristry key to move the user files to another drive location (all programs and files open the way they should on the computer right now, and I believe media streamiing has worked since then.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
