Windows 7: Cannot access shared folders or HomeGroup shares on this computer

Cannot access shared folders or HomeGroup shares on this computer

The HomeGroup shares have been a recurring issue that I haven't been able to solve, but the really perplexing one is the shared folder issue which just cropped up. Some of my shared folders still work, but e, g and h (music and video respectively) for some reason spit back "Access Denied" on all of the other computers in my house, this is in spite of the fact that Permissions on them are set to Full Control for Everyone. Any suggestions?

With regards to HomeGroup shares, they simply don't show up no matter what I do, I'd like to fix that one too, but I'm not sure what I can do to fix that.


EDIT: Got the shares fixed, HomeGroup still stumping me.
