Windows 7: networking and sharing between two computers issue

Well,I'll be! I just downloaded and ran an AVG PC cleanup program and suddenly I can network fine with the computer downstairs. I can even access the networked printer. I am suddenly a happy guy. Who knows what kind of crap the cleanup program eliminated but whatever it did it worked. This problem is definitely solved for now....

I somehow brought up an AVG FREE 2013 page. I updated from AVG 2011 yesterday. Maybe just clicked on the desktop icon. It offered some additional services that each required a download and install. The PC Cleaner was 56 mb, which took a while. I was very hesitant to try it but took the chance and it supposedly repaired something like 1000 problems in this machine. It seems to run fine now so I guess it didn't eat it alive as programs like that can do sometimes. I'd bet if you google AVG FREE 2013 you'll find some way to get it. Of course it tried to get me to buy a more thorough version once it was done. It sure enough fixed my networking issue though so I am happy. I don't remember the 2011 version ever offering this option.

I just checked and the option is called "PC tuneup" and is on the page that comes up from clicking the icon once you have AVG Free 2013 installed. If you activate it it will check the machine and tell you that you have thousands of issues they can fix and when I looked at the details of what they considered an issue, they were right. Thousands of unnecessary files. Now they're gone.

That's good then, maybe something was blocking the connection on the one machine.

Around here we use CCleaner to clean out temp files and the registry, it's about the only I trust but maybe the AVG one cleaned out the right stuff.
