How to fix the Homegroup "Invalid Password." Collab

Hey everyone who has a solution to the Invalid Password error on the Homegroup Sharing please post here. I have fixed mine.



My solution to mine was a security measure: If the Time and Date do not match they will not and reject you with Invalid Password Error.

Everyone submit your working solution.
