Changes in advanced sharing settings are not saving

I go into sharing center, advanced,etc then I turn on network discovery, click save changes, and I go right back in, and it didn't save?

You asked this questions in both forums so I'll answer here again.

This problem usually occurs when certain Windows services that relate to networking are either turned off or not set to Automatic start up.

Check your Services. Ensure that the required services are Started on all the computers:
Go to Start\Control Panel\ Administrative Tools\ Services.

o Computer Browser
o DHCP Client
o DNS Client
o Network Connections
o Network Location Awareness
o Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
o Server
o TCP/IP Netbios helper
o Workstation

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.
To change the startup type, double-click on the service name and change accordingly.

This should do the trick.
