Both computers are hardwired to the router for the internet.The router to the DSL modem.
I have got things all messed up. Black computer is on network#4 and the Silver is on network #3. Looking through the Tutorial I discovered at the beginning big problems. The Black computer doesn't have (Peer Network Grouping) running. The Silver doesn't have (Home Group Listener) working. I have tried to get them to run unsucessful. Problably because I doing something wrong. What I would like to do is remove all part of this mess I got and get the proper services running as they should and create a proper network with these two computers and 2 printers. One printer hardwired and the other WIFI. I have completed sfc /scannow on both computers.
Both computers are Windows 7 Home Premium/64.
The fix seems to be Deleting the file idstore.sst under C:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking
It might also help to Start the Task Manager Click on the service Tab, find the "HomeGroupProvider" and stop it. You may need to go back into services and enable PeerNetworking and HomeGroupProvider again after the fix. Don't forget to restart all machines after making those changes. You may need to enable "Show Hidden Files and Folders" in Folder Options, "View" tab in order to see the idstore.sst file.
You will need to do this on both machines.
These are the only known fixes available
for these problems and this procedure has worked many times to fix both of the problems you are seeing.
